Mrs Roberts said the community needed to ensure the State Government gave the matter urgent priority and sourced funds for solutions.

‘I welcome Transport Minister and Treasurer Troy Buswell’s declaration that the State Government shares the responsibility to protect homes, assets and infrastructure that the erosion is threatening,’ she said.

‘We agree with Mr Buswell that this problem needs a combined approach and are highlighting the urgency of the situation.

‘The City needs the community’s backing ” I strongly urge people to write to their local MPs and to the Premier to ensure their voices are heard.

‘We need immediate and substantial financial support from the State Government to deliver medium and long-term solutions.’

Mrs Roberts said the City was undertaking interim earthworks to address existing damage and conducted daily inspections, monitoring weather patterns.

Residents started an online campaign after severe erosion in Setpember, sharing photos and memories of the beach and foreshore park in the Facebook group ‘Save Our Foreshore Quinns Beach’.
