Have your say on the concept designs and environmental assessment today

Council is planning to replace coastal protection and beach access at Stuart Street and Ramsay Street at the public road ends. The works will involve new stairs for public access and the replacement of existing rock protection boulders with more robust rock revetments, to provide better erosion control and protection of the public reserve and roads above the beach.

We invite you to view the concept designs for the proposed works and the associated Draft Review of Environmental Factors (REF) and have your say by either:

Please include 'Stuart and Ramsay Street Replacement Stairs and Coastal Protection' in the subject line of all email or written feedback.

Overview of the Proposed Works

The existing rock protection will be removed and replaced with a rock revetment designed to contemporary engineering standards. A rock revetment is simply a sloping structure constructed of multiple layers of large interlocking rocks. The new rock revetment will provide improved protection from coastal erosion into the future.

The works will also involve the inclusion of new engineered public stairs, with handrails, that will significantly improve beach access.

The stormwater outfall at Ramsay Street will be retained and a like for like structure reconstructed.
