Surveying works along Swan Bay foreshore
The Swan Bay foreshore is scattered with a range of seawall type structures to protect the foreshore from erosion and other environmental impacts. Over time, some of these seawalls have begun to deteriorate and are now failing to provide the foreshore protection they were designed to do.
As part of our plans to better manage the foreshore area in Marks Point and ensure it is adapted to sea level rise, we are developing adaptive management plans to guide the replacement of failing existing sea walls. This guide will include a set of construction drawings to be used by Council and homeowners when completing shoreline protection works in the future.
From late May, you may notice Council surveyors in the foreshore area near Swan Bay. Our surveyors will be in the area for three to four weeks measuring sections and setbacks along the foreshore to help us develop the construction drawings.
