Dredging was undertaken at Mothers Beach, Mornington to provide safe access to and from the bay. The works commenced in mid-March and continued until late-April, the shire announced on its website.

The material removed during the dredging process was placed at Shire Hall Beach where sand levels have declined.

The dredging – approved under the Marine and Coastal Act 2018 and Parks Victoria – was completed by the Victorian Marine Services (VMS).
