The Shire of Murray is calling for feedback on its Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP).

Shire President, Councillor David Bolt, said erosion and inundation along Murray’s waterways are an increasing risk, and community input into CHRMAP will help shape how it is managed.

“Here at the Shire of Murray, we know the management of the estuarine and riverine areas and foreshore reserves, and the mitigation of associated risks, is integral to the Shire’s ongoing and future success,” said Councillor Bolt.

“To best protect our community, we have developed a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan and this is currently open for comment. I encourage the community to visit our website to share their insights.”

In addition to the online consultation, community are invted to attend drop-in sessions. These will be held at The Court House in Pinjarra on Wednesday 26 July (5pm - 8pm) and Saturday 29 July (9am - 12pm).

UPDATE - The consultation period has been extended to 29 September.
