With more than 35 years’ experience working in the coastal zone, Cardno is a leader in the field with a network of established contacts and strong relations with key regulators. Our understanding of local, state and Commonwealth legislation, regulations, guidance documents, assessment frameworks and processes, is unprecedented.

Integrated coastal planning and management requires a myriad of technical expertise. Cardno’s multi-disciplinary approach provides our clients with preliminary technical assessments of sites, through to securing approvals for changes in land use and beyond, to environmental approvals, detailed design, and management of restoration and revegetation.  

Our experienced team conducts coastal vulnerability studies to identify the implications of shoreline investigations for existing settlement areas and infrastructure and to inform future planning. 

These assessments also provide the basis to prepare Foreshore Management Plans, design developments along the coast, and to implement restoration and revegetation works.
