Murray CHRMAP

Citizen science and input from a community reference group will assist in the development of a plan to manage Murray’s river and estuary environments.

A coastal hazard risk management and adaptation plan is needed to mitigate the impacts and risks of coastal hazards including erosion and inundation, on the Peel Harvey Estuary and tidally influenced portions of the Murray and Serpentine Rivers.

Through a collaborative, objective and comprehensive study, we will gain a deeper understanding of our coastal areas which will be used to develop a long-term strategy to support future coastal management and planning decisions.

Our coastal areas are an intrinsic part of life in Murray, as home to tens of thousands of water birds and other important flora and fauna and housing a range of recreation, conservation, residential and commercial assets.

The increasing extent and frequency of coastal hazards will pose even greater risks into the future and we need to act to protect our environment, character, amenity and way of life

The CHRMAP project will be overseen by a steering group made up of community, Shire and state agency representatives as well as a community reference group.

  • We are commencing preparation of a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP) to assist the community and decision makers in planning strategically for the future.

    Ten members of the community (a mix of residents and representatives from community groups and local businesses ) have already been selected for membership on the group, including:

    • Tracey Bennett - Coolup resident
    • Lilian Ewing - Business owner South Yunderup
    • Stewart Godden - Peel Preservation Group
    • Clive Harradine – Halls Head resident and estuary user 
    • Carol Jacobs - Murray Sea Scouts
    • Barry Logan - Murray Delta Islands resident
    • Linda Gregory - North Yunderup resident
    • Dale Bentley - North Yunderup Community Association President
    • Miranda Ludlow - Murray Delta Islands resident
    • Lindsay Webb - Murray Delta Islands Residents and Ratepayers Association Vice President 

    The group will be a conduit to and from the broader community on the technical aspects of project and help to relay key information to their networks.

    It is anticipated there will be approximately three to four meetings during the preparation of the CHRMAP.

    Membership is voluntary and applications are still open.
