Beach and sand

Tenders have been advertised to repair the lee and outer harbour walls.

Will this help slow the sand entering the harbour as it erodes off the back beach?

56,000cb/mtrs of sand to be pumped out of the harbour in April/May this year.

Will this help slow the severe erosion along the AB front beach?

Or will the beach/sand continue to wash away?

If groynes were built this sand would be trapped and the beach would be widened and heightened.

Great Ocean Road Authority

A bill to establish the new Great Ocean Road Authority to be introduced in state parliament soon.

Bush fire planning

Please attend the Community Fire Planning Workshop at the CFA this Sat. 10 to 1pm.

Apollo Bay IS becoming more vulnerable to bushfires!

Can the fire siren be reinstated in AB? It must only be used for fires.

Binns Rd. from the redwoods to Beech Forrest to be sealed before winter this year.
