Coastal Environment

As the town-sites of Cervantes and Jurien Bay are identified at being of risk of coastal erosion the Shire of Dandaragan has adopted a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP) in accordance with State Planning Policy 2.6 - State Coastal Planning Policy and supporting guideline documents.

The CHRMAP provides a plan for implementation of recommended adaptation options over the next decade to 2030, with a strategic view on the likely adjustments over the next century to 2110.
