Hazard Assessment Released

Bass Coast Shire Council will review the findings of the Western Port Local Coastal Hazard Assessment (WPLCH) after its release on Friday, 5 June 2015.

At the March Ordinary Meeting this year, Council resolved to await the release of the WPLCHA before making any further decisions about how to proceed with Amendment C82.

“The State Government had advised us that the release of the report was imminent, so Council decided to wait for the Assessment. This is consistent with the Planning Panel recommendation to ‘make further amendments to the LSIO as required when further, more detailed modelling becomes available,’” Council’s General Manager Sustainable Development and Growth, Allison Jones, said.

“We are currently reviewing the data in detail and will provide a summary to the community to explain the variances between the LSIO modelling and the recently released WPLCH modelling. Everyone who made a submission to Amendment C82 from 13 March until 2 May 2014 has been notified that the Assessement has been released and that Council now plans to review the findings.”
