Project Blueprint Visits Pittwater

SLSNSW and Australian CoastSafe are undertaking Phase Two of an ambitious project through the funding support of the NSW Water Safety Black Spot Fund called ‘Project Blueprint’.

The project aims to conduct Coastal Public Safety Risk Assessments for every accessible beach and rock platform in NSW and will be instrumental in addressing the coastal drowning issue in NSW both in the short, mid and long term.

The project will achieve this by providing the basis for a long-term, sustainable and effective drowning prevention strategy with clear evidence/data, engagement of relevant stakeholders and the application of effective risk mitigation and drowning prevention initiatives where and when they are required.

Now commencing its second year, the project will see coastal risk officers assessing the Pittwater, Warringah, Manly, Shoalhaven and Bega Local Government Areas.

Pittwater will be the first Local Government Area to be assessed. On-site risk assessments will be conducted from 2 September to 9 September, 2013.

Consultation with local land managers, emergency services, lifeguards, surf life saving clubs and branches, specific stakeholder groups and the general public is fundamental to the success of this project.
