NSW Government OKs Lennox Head Plan

A new plan of action to manage coastal erosion at Lennox Head has been given the green light by the NSW Government.

Ballina Shire Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan has been certified by Planning Minister Rob Stokes and includes proposed works such as an upgrade to the Lennox Head seawall to protect the road and other public facilities.

There will also be investigations into beach nourishment and ongoing monitoring at the site as part of the plan.

Mr Stokes said Lennox Head was a designated coastal erosion hotspot in NSW, and the new plan will help the Ballina coastal community be more resilient to potential impacts and threats.

Erosion at Lennox Head has been recognized as a major issue, and the NSW Government is determined to ensure this is managed and the community and the environment are protected,” Mr Stokes said.

“The saltwater economy is an integral part of our way of life, and we want to ensure we have a healthy coast with thriving, resilient communities now and into the future.”

Ballina Shire Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan covers the whole of the Ballina Shire coastline from Seven Mile Beach in the north to Patches Beach to the south.
