Speaking at the launch - Condon said: "We are looking for public to make submissions to improve the draft plan we have put together, ultimately it will be adopted by the council in September and that will comply with the national deadline set for us. A lot of work has gone into preparing the document by the team - but it is a project everybody has to contribute to. Nobody acting on their own can solve this problem if we all act together we may succeed. We have 1,100 km of coastline in this county, rising sea levels could be a threat to this county, we have our rivers mountains and lakes and there are challenges we have to face and the plan will help to deal with all of these things.
