Cassowary Coast Regional Council (CCRC) is developing a Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) for the Kurrimine and Cowley Beaches. Kurrimine and Cowley Beaches are referenced within many Council planning and strategic reports such as the Cassowary Coast Regional Council 2023 Advocacy Plan and the Cassowary Coast Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy.

A foreshore plan for these areas will encompass existing plans and strategies to develop a wholistic plan of management to guide future land-based activities, identify actions to enhance coastal resilience and improve community and environmental outcomes.

Your Say Survey Summary

The Foreshore Management Plan Kurrimine and Cowley Beaches Your Say Website received 41 contributions from 39 contributors, which is a reasonable proportion of the relevant communities and therefore a good representation of community views. The site saw a total of 302 views from 189 individual visitors.

The survey opened from Monday 15 April to Monday 29 April explored a number of topics including how respondents use the foreshore area, priorities for foreshore management, and knowledge of the nearby world heritage area. Opinions on vegetation, wildlife, and amenities management were also recorded, and valued recreational activities and views on foreshore accessibility were sought after.
