Community engagement

During stage one we conducted two field-based user surveys during peak holiday periods at popular beaches and five information sessions along the length of the Eurobodalla Shire. The community surveys and information sessions indicated the popularity and importance of the coast to local residents, visitors and our economy. The surveys also highlighted a strong desire from the community to preserve the natural landscapes of the local coastline as this is what sets our coast apart.

In stage two Council presented the coastal hazards assessment at community workshops and drop-in sessions in October 2017.

Now in stage three, we are meeting with stakeholders and hosting four public drop-in sessions to hear from community members about what is important to them. Come and talk with us in July 2018 to tell us if there is anything you want to change about how you use and access the beach and share your perspective about managing our coastline.

Get involved during stage 3

Eurobodalla's coast belongs to the community. Our beaches and coastal characteristics offer important environmental, social, cultural, lifestyle, and economic benefits. Your perspective and ideas about what you want your beach to look like in 50 years will help us plan to preserve what is important.

By getting involved in any decisions made now, you can help us maintain our unique coastal characteristics so Eurobodalla's beaches can continue to be enjoyed by everyone, now and in the future.

Come to a drop in session in July 2018 to talk with us about the program and share your ideas with us.

Stakeholder discussions

As well as community drop in sessions, in July 2018 we are meeting with stakeholders who have a specific interest or are directly impacted by coastal hazards. This includes waterfront property owners with properties at immediate risk of hazards such as coastal erosion, and groups such as Coastwatchers, Coastal Alliance, and the Batemans Bay Chamber of Commerce.
