Council recognised the importance of the coastal zone in Northern Moreton Bay to the natural, cultural and socio-economic welfare of the community.
The urbanised sections of foreshores of Deception Bay, Beachmere, Godwin Beach, Sandstone Point (south of Bribie Island bridge), Toorbul and Donnybrook had been identified as priority areas for erosion management where shoreline erosion can have the potential to impact on amenity, infrastructure and development.
The study was undertaken in two stages with the first stage including an overview of legislative requirements, a review of the existing coastal environment and an introduction to possible erosion management options for the coastal systems. The second stage of the study reviewed suitable management options for each study area in order to develop a prioritised list of erosion management.
