Why is Council proposing to replace the seawall?

The existing boulder seawall is deteriorating, requiring replacement.


What is Council proposing for the replacement of the seawall?

The proposed seawall will maintain elements of the informal character of the existing boulder wall through the use of large sandstone blocks. For a portion of the wall, the sandstone blocks will be terraced to allow opportunities for informal seating.

The seawall upgrade is funded as part of Council’s Capital Works Infrastructure Renewal Program 2019/2020.
