Sandstone block solution being explored

Mr Brian Bell will replace Mr Noble as CEOMr Brian Bell CCC CEO

A permanent solution is being investigated to address the instability of sandstone blocks positioned at the mouth of Patonga Creek, according to Central Coast Council.
Sandstone blocks had moved out of place earlier in 2017.
The area was fenced off by Central Coast Council following reports from local residents that the blocks were a potential entrapment danger for picnickers and swimmers at high tide.
In a written response to questions from Peninsula News, council chief Mr Brian Bell stated: “Council is currently exploring options to remediate the damage to the area around Patonga Creek so as to be able to remove the temporary fencing in the short-term.
“Budget has also been allocated in the 2017-18 financial year for permanent repairs to be completed, with the extent of work currently being investigated.”
