Council, in consultation with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, is planning the staged repair and upgrade of the Brighton Promenade coastal path. This essential work is proposed to be undertaken over time to prevent further erosion.
The existing rock sea wall will be strengthened and raised in height, while maintaining views to the bay. Sections of the coast walking path in poor condition will be replaced and new seating installed.
New terraced steps providing access to the water are proposed at the end of North Road. This aims to improve public access to the bay, otherwise not possible in this section of foreshore, and also allow stormwater run off from North Road.
More information on these proposed improvements is available in the draft masterplan Coastal Processes and Coastal Management sections on page 8 and 9 as well as the North Road Foreshore Detail Plan.
