WA Government Announces Grants for Coastal Adaptation Projects

The West Australian government has announced allocation of approximately $1 million for 16 coastal adaptation and protection projects along the state’s coastline.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the largest funding allocation was secured by the City of Busselton, which received a total of $533,000 for seven projects, including $259,000 for works to stabilise the foreshore at Locke Estate. “The projects will provide a better understanding of coastal processes and ensure coastal assets are protected from the effects of ocean forces into the future,” he said.

The Coastal Adaptation and Protection grants also provide coastal engineering support to local councils. More information is available at – http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/CAPgrants
