Cervantes and Jurien Bay Coastal Planning Management (Closed)

The Shire invites interested parties to complete a survey regarding the coastal planning and management of Cervantes and Jurien Bay.
The purpose of this survey is to gain an understanding of what you think is important about the coast and which elements of coastal planning and management should be prioritised.
This survey is part of the Cervantes and Jurien Bay Coastal Adaptation Investigation to address the risks of coastal erosion hazard both now and over the next 100 years.
The objectives of this survey are to determine:
🌊 How often community members visit the foreshore and what activities they engage in whilst there;
🌊 What the local community considers to be the most important ecological, social, cultural, aesthetic, recreational, and economic values of the study area, and their willingness to pay for ongoing access to these;
🌊 The level of tolerance and acceptability of specific adaptation options within the communities for specific assets or groups of assets; and
🌊 Community opinion on possible funding mechanisms to manage coastal hazards into the future.
The information collected from this survey will inform an adaptation plan aimed to help both townsites adapt to coastal erosion over both the short and long term.
Individual survey versions for both Cervantes and Jurien Bay can be completed by the following link or in hardcopy at the Shire Admin and Turquoise Coast Visitor Centre.
Surveys can be completed up to close of business Friday 20 May 2022.
Should you require any further information or clarification regarding this survey and the overall project, please do not hesitate to contact Development Services staff on 9652 0800 or council@dandaragan.wa.gov.au.
