Ocean Beach Erosion

Ocean Beach Erosion

Dunedin (Thursday, 1 September) - Due to recent swell activity off Ocean Beach, there has been a drop in sand levels on the beach and erosion of the dune face, particularly in the area between The Esplanade, St Clair and Moana Rua Road, St Kilda.

There is a forecast increase in swell conditions at the end of this week, meaning there is the possibility of further erosion.

Contractors are removing overhanging sections of the dune to prevent it from falling onto the beach.

Due to the lowered sand level, the stairway from the gravel track, between the St Clair seawall and the tennis courts, has been closed and the lower sections removed. This section of the track may also be at risk of erosion during the predicted storm event and will be closely monitored.

Early next week, DCC staff and engineers will inspect the beach and arrange any necessary repair works.

We thank the public for their understanding and co-operation.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More
