The draft plan for how we adapt to coastal changes at Coogee Beach is open for comment


Background

The Coogee Beach foreshore supports a diverse range of interests and is highly valued by the local and wider community.

Studies identify parts of Coogee Beach foreshore as potentially vulnerable due to the impact of coastal erosion. As a result, the foreshore's assets and natural environment may come under pressure in the future.

A Foreshore Management Plan for Coogee Beach has been prepared. This plan will guide how we adapt to coastal changes in a way that continues to support the environmental, social, recreational, and economic values of the foreshore (click to see map).

This plan is currently open for public comment. It will be finalised and presented to Council for adoption later this year.

What We Heard So Far

In 2020 we sought feedback from key stakeholders and the community on how they use and what they most value about Coogee Beach foreshore, as well as their priorities on various adaptation scenarios. We heard from over 220 residents, visitors, businesses, community groups and organisations.

Whilst there were some conflicting points of view, many agreed that when adapting to coastal changes, it is important to maintain a sandy beach, a vegetated dune buffer and the current balance between natural and built environments (now as well as in the future if shoreline changes occur). Click here to view a feedback summary. The draft Foreshore Management Plan has been developed with these priorities in mind.
