Coastal Adaptation Projects Currently Underway

John Batten Community Hall Seawall

A seawall is currently being constructed in front of the John Batten Community Hall to replace the temporary rock embankment installed in 2010 to protect the facility from erosion caused by winter storms.  More here

The works are being funded by the State Government with the funding from the $600,000 the City received to construct a third Geotextile Sand Container groyne at Whitehill Road. See project details below.

This project was completed under budget and with the remaining funds the existing protection is being replaced with a more resilient revetment that will ensure the continued use of this popular community facility.

Local contractor Red Dust Holdings are undertaking the works, which are expected to be completed in September 2021. More here
