Coromandel: Mitigating Beach Erosion at Flaxmill Bay

Work is progressing on options to mitigate beach erosion at Flaxmill Bay, as part of a wider program of work to protect the Coromandel coastline, the Thames-Coromandel District Council reports.

A combination of king tides and an extreme weather event last July last caused significant erosion at Flaxmill Bay and Cooks Beach, and the council has been discussing appropriate options to address this through a series of community meetings and workshops.

“We have a current resource consent application with Waikato Regional Council for a staged rock revetment at Cooks Beach that will transition to a backstop wall and, ultimately, to a soft option (dune plantings) to protect this beach. We are currently finalizing the preliminary design drawings for the application, with updates to the beach access and landscaping enhancements,” said the council.

Once we have these design drawings together we will come back to the community for an update on the project, process and cost to complete this within this financial year (June 2019).”

It is expected that the construction of these erosion protection works will start before the middle of this year, and construction of the groyne is expected to start before July.
