Coastal Planning Decision could have implications in Eurobodalla

Posted: March 1, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

The Victorian Council of Port Fairy has had a residential devolopment refused on the grounds that it could be affected by rises in sea levels as a result of climate change in the future.

The decision, which was made by an advisory committee to the Victorian State Government, is made on the basis that the land in question is bounded by a river on one side and the sea on the other, and it is likely to be inundated if there is a sea level rise.

This decision could have implications for parts of Eurobodalla Shire where there are areas which are bounded by rivers and the sea.
