Funding Secured for Wamberal Beach Nourishment

Adam Crouch MP – Member for Terrigal, today handed over a $207,500 cheque to Central Coast Council for beach nourishment and design work for a revetment wall at Wamberal Beach.

This is the first significant funding milestone for a long-term solution to protect hundreds of millions of dollars of public and private assets on Ocean View Drive, reported Adam Crouch.

He congratulated the Council, the Wamberal Protection Association, the NSW Coastal Alliance and local residents for working together to achieve this outcome.

The funding will follow Central Coast Council investigation on a long-term strategy for the management of sand dune erosion at Wamberal Beach, which has been impacted by significant weather events in recent years.

The recently released Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) identified a number of actions for Wamberal Beach, including:

  • Terminal protection – including the review, design and funding of a terminal protection structure for Wamberal;
  • Sand/beach nourishment for Wamberal Beach;
  • Beach nourishment coupled with a terminal revetment to increase buffer against storm erosion.
