EUROBODALLA Shire Council is currently preparing a Coastal Zone Management Plan that will provide a template for the long term sustainable management and enjoyment of our local beaches and needs your input.
“Council’s coastal planner and consultant, Umwelt Australia, will be coming to a beach near you on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 January to find out what is important to you when it comes to maintaining and protecting our beaches,” said Eurobodalla Shire Mayor," Cr Lindsay Brown.
“The plan will ultimately deliver an outline of our coast that includes community uses and aspirations, the natural environment and the physical processes and hazards that must be considered when planning how our coastal settlements will evolve over time.”
You can catch up with council and the consultant and participate in the Eurobodalla Coastal Zone Management Plan survey at the following three beach stalls:
* Malua Bay Beach, Monday 7 January from 9.30 to 11.30am
* South Broulee Beach, Monday 7 January from 1.30 to 3.30pm
* Narooma Main Beach, Tuesday 8 January from 9.30 to 11.30am
“These are our busiest beaches and council will be providing information to the community about the project and coastal management in general,” Cr Brown said.
“If you are there relaxing and enjoying yourself and see the team, come and tell us why you love our beaches and what you believe Eurobodalla Shire Council needs to do to protect them into the future.”
If you don’t have time to fill out a survey, you can pick up a brochure and fill out the survey later online in your own time by visiting council’s website, www.esc.nsw.gov.au
Cr Brown is encouraging everyone to participate because it is important council captures a wide range of views in the Eurobodalla Coastal Zone Management Plan.
“The coast is important to everyone and we each have a responsibility to ensure the beaches we enjoy today can be enjoyed in the future as well, so come and have a say,” Cr Brown said.
