Community workshops July 2017 - Historical Analysis
Council held two successful workshops in late July 2017, with presentations from Australian Heritage Specialists and Climate Planning. The workshops highlighted to the public the key notable weather events along the Whitsunday coastline, including cyclones, floods and droughts, dating from as far back as 1884.
Donovan Burton from Climate Planning discussed some of the key climatic trends and associated cascading impacts for the public, such as insurance and disaster management implications.
Members of the public were invited to view the visual displays showcasing climatic weather patterns, significant cyclones and floods experienced by coastal Whitsunday townships, ask questions and provide feedback to Council on the topics presented.
Whitsunday Regional Council will be looking at hosting further community presentations associated with the next phases of the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy in the near future. These will be advertised here, on Facebook and in the newspaper.
