 Emu Point to Middleton Beach Coastal Adaptation and Protection Strategy

The coastline of Emu Point and Middleton Beach is a vital component of the identity of Albany.  Adapting to changing sea levels, coastal erosion and inundation will be critical in maintaining our special relationship with these iconic areas.

The City of Albany has been working with the State Government and coastal specialists to define potential erosion risks and timelines for Middleton Beach and Emu Point.  The City wants to find out what people value most about Middleton Beach and Emu Point and work with the community to determine options for adapting to coastal erosion.

This process will produce a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP) which builds on previous community engagement and data collection. Council and the community will draw on this information to determine possible treatments and consider the implications, trade-offs, planning mechanisms and timeframes. 

We are now giving everyone the opportunity to have their say about future management of coastal erosion, whether you live in Middleton Beach, Emu Point, the broader area of Albany or elsewhere.

Initial input on assets you value can be provided by visiting: https://albany.mysocialpinpoint.com/chrmap#/

Other opportunities to provide input are being planned for 2018 and 2019, including consideration of a variety of treatments, opportunities, constraints and planning mechanisms. A document will be released for community review and input in early 2019.

To be included on the mailing list or to find out more about the project, contact Emma Evans, City of Albany Major Projects Officer on emmae@albany.wa.gov.au or 6820 3015.
