Rockingham Hosts Community Stakeholder Dredging Meeting

The City of Rockingham in Western Australia is set to hold a community stakeholder meeting today on plans for the post-dredging project at the Waikiki Beach Foreshore.

The city said that the placement of dredged sand on the beach at Waikiki has created a problem and that the beach needs to be remediated to restore its visual amenity and recreational values.

“We are currently working towards a solution that will be immediate and permanent,” the official release stated.

The locals slammed the city for its decision to pump dredged sand from the Bent Street site toward Donald Drive boat ramp, which they say has turned their “pristine” beach grey.

“Stakeholders are invited to attend the meeting on Friday to discuss our plans for this site and help prioritize the work to achieve the best outcome,” said Mayor Barry Sammels.

The Rockingham dredging meeting be held at 4pm near the car park on Safety Bay Road opposite the Malibu Road roundabout.
