Consultation has concluded

Council has been working for a number of years to find a solution to potential coastal erosion issues in Lake Cathie. In 2007 Council and the community commenced work on the Lake Cathie Coastal Zone Management Plan and in 2014, following extensive consultation with our community, a rock revetment wall was identified as the preferred option to address coastal erosion.

Based on coastal hazard studies along Illaroo Road between 2008 - 2012, it was confirmed that the coastline at Lake Cathie was retreating. We have been working to find a solution to potential coastal erosion issues and the on development of a revetment wall in Lake Cathie for a number of years. Consequently, in 2012-13 a number of potential management solutions were considered, including the revetment wall. Ultimately, at the November 2013 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to proceed with a concept design for a rock revetment wall with beach nourishments. This preferred solution was then presented to the NSW Government, who then requested a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) to analyse the viability of the project and a Funding Model to outline the distribution of costs to direct and indirect beneficiaries. These documents are available for download in the document library to the right (or below if viewing this page on a mobile device).
