Erosion committee starts to take action in Seabird

A COMMITTEE formed to consider erosion solutions at Seabird held its first two meetings this month.

The committee includes five councillors, two community representatives and two independent technical advisers.

Its aim is to find a long-term solution for the erosion that has threatened several beachfront homes.

Gingin chief executive Jeremy Edwards and operations manager Allister Butcher also attend meetings in a non-voting capacity to provide advice.

According to a Shire of Gingin statement, the committee discussed background and management processes at the first meeting, then held a second meeting a week later.

“The committee recommended obtaining a consultant’s quotation for the detailed design of a structural solution for Stage 2 of the project,” the statement said.
