The Douglas Shire coastal zone encompasses world-class landscape features, including pristine rainforests and beaches.
Coastlines are dynamic, ever-changing with each tide and storm event. Erosion and storm tide events are natural processes that shape the coast over long time frames. However, these events become coastal hazards when they impact on our communities.
The purpose of the Resilient Coast program is to enable us to be better prepared to reduce the impacts of coastal hazards on our communities, environment, cultural values, infrastructure, livability and services.
