Quinns Rocks fourth groyne information sessions next week

Quinns Rocks fourth groyne information sessions next week

The City of Wanneroo will hold two information sessions on April 27 to outline two preferred coastal management options.

The first is to modify the existing groynes, build a fourth groyne to the north and add sand to the beach.

The second option would be to relocate the Quinns Beach car park, build another northern groyne and add sand.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the council was committed to listening to residents and would accommodate community wishes as far as possible when making decisions about the future of the beach.

“Quinns Beach is a beautiful part of the City and integral to the beach-side lifestyle our community enjoys,” she said.

“Unfortunately, however, the area suffers from significant erosion issues and the City is determined to find long term solutions to this problem. The City is keen to ensure that the chosen option aligns with community needs and expectations, so I invite all residents to have their say and attend one of the information sessions taking place this month.”

Erosion has been an ongoing issue along the Quinns Rocks coastline, most recently with the collapse of part of Fred Stubbs Park in 2013.

Community information sessions will be held at 10.30am and 6.30pm on Wednesday, April 27, at the Gumblossom Community Centre sports hall on Tapping Way.
