Media Release - Coastal Reserves Community Consultations Sessions Wrap Up

4th November 2022

Council extends its thanks to residents who attended the second round of Coastal Reserves Community Consultation Sessions for Lucinda, Taylors Beach and Forrest Beach on Monday 31 October, Tuesday 1 November and Wednesday 2 November 2022.

All three workshops were well attended, and participants were provided with a recap of the previous workshops’ outcomes, the initial survey results from the first round of sessions, and a deep dive into the potential management actions proposed for each locality.

The location-specific management actions were explained in detail at each of the community workshops, and attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions and clarify any concerns. For those who missed the sessions, the presentations can be accessed via Council’s website, Knowledge Hub page, under Factsheets and Other Documents. 

A final survey containing the draft list of potential management actions for the Shoreline Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) across Forrest Beach, Taylors Beach, Lucinda and Dungeness is now available via Council’s website, Shoreline Erosion Management Plan Community Consultation page.

The survey allows you to scroll through the list and provide your feedback for any or all actions. It is recommended that you be informed about the actions, discuss these actions with the project team if you have any questions, and only provide feedback on the actions applicable to your coastal location, or those that could potentially impact on you in some way. 

Please note that this survey closes on Sunday 27 November 2022. 

From here, the community feedback will be considered in prioritising the final SEMP recommendations, with the intent that the final draft will be available for public exhibition before being sent to the State Government in early 2023 for approval. 

Should you require any further information regarding this project, please visit Council’s website, Shoreline Erosion Management Plan Community Consultation page, or contact our project team by phone on 4776 4740.
