Community Survey On Our Coastal Future – Port, Leighton and Mosman Beaches Coast Plan

The City of Fremantle and the Town of Mosman Park are working together to develop a coastal adaptation plan  to provide direction about how we manage Port, Leighton and Mosman beaches over the long term.

We want to know: What do you enjoy and value about this coast?

Please take the survey now

The survey is open until 15 August 2016.

One Response to Community Survey On Our Coastal Future – Port, Leighton and Mosman Beaches Coast Plan

    Brad,

    Congratulations on the survey and working together with the Town of Mosman Park to develop a “coastal adaption plan”. Much more research is needed to sustain the natural sandbank at our local beaches.

    The blog photos focus on erosion. Having photographed the Port Beach sand bank for the past 10 years, I hope there will be a follow up survey seeking ideas the local community may have or may have seen used to manage coastal erosion in other parts of the world.

    One aspect of Port Beach that has seen a positive change in the past two years is allowing the sand bank to naturally compact, defend and replenish itself without the interference of onshore machinery.

    There are examples of narrow neck sand bank beaches being improved and protected in Queensland without the use of groynes and breakwaters. In Fremantle we have an offshore resource that could possibly be used to improve the amenity at Port and Leighton beach. It’s just an idea at this stage and one I’d be happy to discuss.

    Part 1 of the 2004 Department for Planning and Infrastructure , Port Beach Coastal Erosion Study, provides a good read for anyone interested in understanding the movement of the beach sand bank in our local area.

    Regards
    John Vodanovic
