BUSSELTON FORESHORE REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT

Hon LYNN MacLAREN to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:

I refer to the Busselton foreshore redevelopment project.

(1) Would the minister advise why the coastal study in relation to the project has not been made public?

(2) Is it intended that the coastal study will be made public?

(3) If yes to (2), when?

(4) If no to (2), why not?

(5) Did the coastal study include a coastal vulnerability assessment of the land affected by the project?

(6) If no to (5), why not?

(7) If yes to (5), to what extent is that land at risk from sea level rise or other impacts of coastal climate
change, including extreme weather events and storm surges?

Hon HELEN MORTON replied:
(1)–(7) I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I am advised that responsibility for this
project lies with the Shire of Busselton.
