the other impacts of coastal climate change, including extreme weather event and storm surges
impacts of climate change?

adaptation measures proposed in 1(c) above?

(1) (a)–(c) No. The Busselton Foreshore Redevelopment Project is being undertaken by the Shire of
Busselton. I understand that the Project is currently in the Plan and Design Phase, and as such
information about the proposal has not yet been provided by the Shire to the Western
Australian Planning Commission. Any questions regarding details of the Project should
therefore be directed to the Shire.

(2) See above.
