South East Queensland's (SEQ) potential exposure to tropical cyclone and storm surge events provides a significant dilemma for coastal settlements and their communities. It is essential for the long-term viability of SEQ's coastal settlements that effective land-use strategies are developed and implemented. This study develops a comprehensive land-use response that is capable of identifying suitable levels of planning response to potential hazard risks.
