Point Moore Discussion Paper

While the current leases at Point Moore do not provide for an extension of the term, there is a growing expectation from leaseholders that they have rights beyond the current lease term, and that the Council should provide clarity with respect to the future of leasehold properties at Point Moore.

The purpose of the discussion paper is to provide a summary of the issues relating to Point Moore with the view to the Council finally determining the future of leasehold properties in Point Moore - beyond the current lease expiry dates of 2025 and 2028.

Point Moore Studies

In accordance with a Council Resolution of 22 April 2014  in regard to the Point Moore (West End) beach cottage leases, the City undertook two studies to gain a better understanding of the risks associated with coastal inundation and erosion and impact the aged waste water disposal systems may have on the area.

The purpose of the two studies is to inform Council decision making regarding potential Point Moore lease extensions.

Inundation and Coastal Processes

The Point Moore Inundation and Coastal Processes Study examined the impact sea level rise, tides, storm surges, waves, Tsunamis, wind and climate cycles (El Nino, La Nina) could have on the area.
