Defend Port Fairy

 Are you concerned about climate change and how sea-level rise will effect Port Fairy?

Moyne Shire Council is working to ‘Defend Port Fairy’, making it more resilient to sea level rise and extreme weather events.

Research has identified areas such as the two old municipal tips at East Beach, the Botanical Gardens, and houses close to East Beach, and South Beach as being at extreme risk of coastal erosion, inundation or wave run-up.

We have developed a discussion paper that provides you with a summary of these and other coastal threats facing Port Fairy. We now need your views and input on this to help plan our response to the dangers.

The discussion paper is available here(PDF, 2MB) or from Council Offices, and the Port Fairy Library.

Drop in Sessions are to be held which will give you your chance to learn about the research and studies that are been undertaken to ‘Defend Port Fairy’.

This is also an opportunity to air your views and speak directly to decision makers.

Drop in Sessions will be held at the Port Fairy Community Services Centre on:

Thursday 12 October: 2.30pm – 4.30pm, and 5.30pm – 7.30pm

Friday 13 October: 8.30am-10.30am, and 11.30am – 1.30pm
