A recent article from the Guardian states that "Growing demand for water in Perth has caused the city to sink at up to 6mm a year and could be responsible for an apparent acceleration in the rate of sea level rise, according to new research released by Curtin University."
Strategic coastal planning for WA's beautiful coastline is needed fast, which is why Lynn developed my Climate Change Readiness (Coastal Planning and Protection) Bill 2013 and introduced the Bill into Parliament on the 20th June 2013.
It is now time for the State Government to make coastal planning and climate change adaptation a priority.
If you would like to support the campaign for greater planning to manage the impact of climate change on our precious coastline, its time to take action.
