Foreshore protection project and other council news

Here is a quick update of local and council related matters. 

Next HWCV meeting: October 16th 2023, 7pm, Huskisson Community Centre.

Update from last meeting

  • Shoalhaven City Council CEO, Stephen Dunshea, has announced that he will retire in February 2024. 
  • Foreshore protection
    Shoalhaven City Council manages 40 beaches with over 220 beach access points that are exposed to a wide variety of coastal impacts and processes.
    Our beaches and foreshores throughout the Shoalhaven are all susceptible to impacts from the following key issues:
    • impacts from urbanisation
    • erosion
    • vegetation loss
    • informal beach access tracks.

Council is currently managing these coastal zones to mitigate hazardous impacts and improve accessibility and safety for people, whilst maintaining the natural attraction that our coastline provides for the Shoalhaven community and its visitors to enjoy.
