Redland City Council has endorsed the Amity Point Shoreline Erosion Management Plan (SEMP), outlining its strategy to manage and respond to current and future erosion issues.

The City Mayor and Chair of Redland City Coastal Adaptation Strategy Steering Committee Karen Williams said: “Amity is a declared erosion prone area under the Coastal Protection and Management Act 1995, and has a long history of significant erosion resulting in loss of property and assets.”

People are drawn to this popular coastal destination, but there is an ongoing battle with the forces of nature,” Cr Williams said. “The Amity Point SEMP gives clarity around the complex causes of shoreline erosion and provides management options and recommendations.”

The SEMP outlines approaches to three coastal areas of Amity – the southern, central and northern reaches – and is a medium-term management plan. It makes recommendations regarding physical works such as beach nourishment and supporting the existing sea wall, as well as areas where further technical studies are required,” Cr Williams added.

Division 2 Councillor Peter Mitchell said that the endorsement of the SEMP would be followed by the development of an implementation plan.

According to him, the SEMP makes recommendations regarding shoreline erosion management at Amity, but does not specifically address issues such as costs, land tenure, access and rock supply.

The SEMP gives us a clearer idea of works that may address erosion issues, and will inform the implementation plan in addressing how this could be done,” Cr Mitchell said.
