Analysis & Next Steps
The Port Beach Values survey outcomes and considerations of stakeholders of both the beach and surrounding infrastructure were assessed alongside a range of criteria such as technical feasibility. This was combined into a multi-criteria analysis (MCA) to evaluate coastal risk management options.
The sustainable retention of the beach has come into focus through the study and has raised a number of issues which required further, coordinated investigation to create a long term plan for the sustainable management of the coastal reserve.
The City is encouraged by the work so far and is exploring all options and finalising the analysis. A report to Council is being prepared and is anticipated to go to the November 2019 committee and Council meetings. All participants and those who have registered will be updated when the agenda is ready and this page will be updated with the latest news.
