Beach health

The group has been involved in been involved in actions to protect our beaches since the early 1990’s.

Our latest concern is the Department For Environment’s proposal to construct a pipeline to pump sand from the northern metropolitan beaches to West Beach.

We think this is a very BAD idea because:

  • It is environmentally harmful to beaches where the sand is mined
  • Sand dunes essential to protection against global sea level rise are eroded
  • Mining means the presence of earthmoving machinery on the beaches for extended periods of time – months, thus conflicting with the rights of local residents to enjoy the area.
