MidCoast Council: New Sand Arrives at Jimmys Beach

The New South Wales’ MidCoast Council will continue to replenish the sand on Jimmys Beach next week thanks to financial assistance from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, MidCoast Council announces. 

The plan is to place 5,000 cubic meters of sand onto the Beach along the Boulevarde, between Guya Street and Kururma Crescent,” said Council’s Coastal Management Coordinator, Andrew Staniland.

This is the second stage of a sand replenishment program after 5,000 cubic meters was placed on the Beach in June 2018.

“We’re doing this to place a sand buffer on the Beach, which is designed to be stripped during an adverse weather event, in case this occurs during winter,” added Staniland.

The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage has provided 50% of the cost of the project, with the Council matching those funds.

Sand replenishment is part of the Beach Management Program for Jimmys Beach, which provides a buffer for natural erosion events.

Previous investigations have shown that the use of a sand buffer is the most cost effective management solution for this area, when compared to other hard engineering structures.
