Presenting at the QELA Intensive

October 18, 2017

It was a pleasure presenting with James Houston of Counsel and Philip Haines from BMT WBM at the QELA Regional Intensive Seminar over the weekend.  The beautiful setting of Hamilton Island was a great backdrop to the range of relevant, interesting and high quality papers presented by those in the profession.  I look forward to attending the next one!

 

 

A link to my paper "Management of Coastal Districts and Coastal Hazards in Queensland at the Local Level" can be found here

 

As noted in the paper it appears that:

  • risk based approaches have enjoyed acceptance in Queensland in the past and thanks to their adoption in the State Planning Policy, will become a feature of planning schemes in relation to coastal hazards;

  • difficult decisions are confronting Councils in the near future in the coastal hazard adaptation strategies;

  • much will depend upon the approach ultimately adopted by each local government, their assessment of risk and willingness to accept mitigation measures in the future;

  • even with the benefit of a coast adaptation strategy integrated into the scheme, applications for otherwise complying development will remain vulnerable to arguments about failure to discharge the onus for rare hazards with significant consequences.
