Secret Council CHAP paper doesn’t back immediate planning restrictions on homes21st July 2021

In another blow for Noosa Council’s embattled Coastal Hazards planning process, an internal Council options report doesn’t recommend the most controversial aspect of Council’s draft adaption plan as a priority.

Eastern Beaches Protection Association spokesperson Minna Knight said the report (Conclusions table attached), previously withheld from the community, vindicated EPBA’s science-based proposal for climate change management and reinforced there was no need to rush to adverse planning proposals on homes.

“This report looked at a range of possible actions for the Coastal Hazards Adaption Plan (CHAP) coding them as “go” (higher priority), “slow” (lower priority) or “stop” items. A review of the “go” items is very similar to the EBPA’s proposed plan to protect our beaches,” Ms Knight said.
