TO find out why residents value the coastline, the City of Wanneroo has released a community survey that could help develop a coastal risk management strategy.

The City finished the first part of its Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan study in 2015, which investigated the potential future impacts of climate change along the coastline.

That identified a number of assets that may be vulnerable to coastal erosion within the next 35 years.

Part two of the study will involve assessing the risk and developing an adaptation plan to manage potential sea level rise and associated coastal erosion, with coastal management consultants Cardno recruited to do the study.

An online survey will be open until August 19 at surveymonkey.com/r/XDB|VLSK.
