Help shape our Foreshore Management Plan, tell us what you value about the Coogee Beach foreshore


A few years ago, the City was part of the Cockburn Sound Coastal Alliance Coastal Vulnerability and Flexible Adaptation Pathways Project . This study identified areas along our coast that are at risk of erosion.

In this study, parts of the Coogee Beach foreshore reserve were identified as increasingly vulnerable to erosion. In the long term, the Coogee Beach foreshore area is expected to experience coastal hazards (based on current projected sea level rise estimates). This will place pressures on the foreshore's assets and the natural environment.

In order to manage continued recreational and commercial use of the area and appropriately adapt to the changing coast, a Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) for Coogee Beach is required. The City has engaged coastal planning consultants to assist with the development of the Plan. This Plan will need to align with the State Planning Policy, as well as a number of other local plans and policies.

The FMP will guide how we manage this space over the next 50 years, in a way that preserves ecological, cultural and social values, whilst enabling use of the foreshore in a sustainable manner. The Plan will be reviewed and updated throughout its lifespan to ensure it remains reflective of current needs and circumstances.
