The coastal strip from Shelly Beach to Moffat Beach is a
favourite spot for many of us.
A detailed study of the coastal strip from the southern end of Shelly Beach northward to Tooway Lake is underway. This stretch of coast includes Shelly Beach, Moffat Headland, and Moffat Beach. The investigation seeks to better understand community perspectives on what is valued about this section of coastline and the challenges and opportunities associated with its management. The findings of this investigation will help ensure the future management of the area achieves the right balance for our residents, our wildlife and our coastal biodiversity in the future.
Between 2021 and 2022 Council undertook a detailed study of the coastal strip from the southern end of Shelly Beach northward to Tooway Lake is underway. This stretch of coast includes Shelly Beach, Moffat Headland, and Moffat Beach.
Phase 1 of the project process established a clear understanding of shared community values and place priorities and helped clarify key opportunities and issues affecting the amenity, enjoyment, and ecological values of the area.
Phases two and three of the project established a series of spatially applied actions to guide council and community activity in the study area in response to these values. Key stakeholder groups and the broader community were invited to attend an exhibition style presentation of these key directions. Council received 135 online submissions and the exhibition was attended by close to 100 people.
Feedback from the community was well considered, with significant advice and information provided in response to the proposed directions documented in the panels.
