Meeting on Redlands Coastal Erosion Set for Next Week

The first in a series of community events about the impact of coastal erosion in the Redlands will be held at Wellington Point Reserve on Saturday, 22 April, from 8am to 12pm, Redland City Council just announced.

Redland City Mayor, Karen Williams, said that 44 sites across the city had been identified as prone to erosion in the Draft Coastal Adaptation Strategy Phase 1 Current Hazards, with residents invited to share their thoughts on the proposed management approaches for each site.

“We have 220km of coastline in the Redlands that is constantly changing with the wind, waves and tides,” she said.

“These changes can affect public and private infrastructure, social and economic amenity, and the wellbeing of our residents, so it’s important to understand how the community uses these spaces and what unique aspects of the sites users would like to preserve.

“For example, an area popular for launching kayaks and stand up paddleboards may be best preserved by replenishing the sand rather than constructing a wall that would alter ease of access. By contrast, sand replenishment may not be the best approach for a particularly sensitive marine environment.”

Cr Williams said that the council had developed the draft strategy in consultation with the state government, traditional owners, professional bodies and non-government organizations, including SEQ Catchments and Healthy Waterways.
