Point Moore Survey and Information Session

During the winter months the City's coastline has been eroded by winter storms, high swells and high tides.

The beaches at Point Moore have eroded right up to the base of the dunes, leaving it unsafe to drive on at times which resulted in the vehicle access tracks being temporarily closed.

Since then, concerns raised by Councillors and the community about coastal erosion have sparked a conversation about how the ongoing recreational use of Point Moore beaches and the much needed protection of the coastal dunes can be balanced.

In September 2021, the City engaged with the community to gain a better understanding of how and why people value and use these popular beaches. A community survey was conducted and a drop-in information session was also held. The feedback received is informing the management of the dunes and beaches including vehicles driving on the beach.
