Funding Secured for Seabird Coastal Scheme

State cabinet has approved $2 million of Royalties for Regions funding for the Gingin Shire to address coastal erosion at Seabird.

The works will involve a possible engineering solution to protect Seabird homes and property under immediate threat.

A longer term strategy to treat erosion in Seabird will be investigated through the development of a Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan.

Member for Moore Shane Love MLA welcomed news of the Royalties for Regions funding, which he said was necessary to address a situation in Seabird which had become desperate.

In recent times the situation has become desperate and I commend the Seabird Progress Association for engaging an engineering consultancy and proposing works that will work to address the immediate danger,” Mr Love said.

The Seabird Progress Association has engaged a specialist engineering firm who are due to meet with the Gingin Shire this week.
