Coastal Hazard Adaption Strategy (CHAS)

Redlands coastline is changing and planning is the key.

As the climate changes, sea levels are set to rise and more intense storms may bring increased storm tide inundation and erosion risks to areas of Redlands Coast currently considered at low or no risk.

With approximately 335 kilometres of coastline and foreshore across Redlands Coast, from Tingalpa Creek at Thorneside south to the mouth of the Logan River and across the Southern Moreton Bay islands and North Stradbroke Island, we have a lot to consider.

Council and private landholders need to think about, and plan for, the changes these coastal hazards can bring over the next 40 to 80 years.

Redland City Council is planning now across an 80 year time horizon, and you are invited on the journey. Learn about the coastal hazards from Council and others, as we navigate the path to adaptation.

The Coastal Hazards Adaptation Strategy: Part 2 - Emerging Hazards (CHAS) is now under development and is expected to be complete by 2020.

As Council plans for the impacts on public property and assets, private landholders can learn and consider the impacts on their own individual properties and how they can adapt to mitigate the long term implications.
