The NSW Government has been asked to provide funding for Central Coast Council to complete a study into long-term options for managing erosion at Ocean and Umina Beaches.

A grant application has been submitted to the Office of Environment and Heritage for the completion of the study. The funding will enable completion of a three-year project that was identified in its Coastal Zone Management Plan as a high priority action. Council aims to have prepared a technical brief and engaged specialist consultants by June 30. The consultants will design and undertake an environmental assessment to enable construction of the coastal protection works at Umina and Ocean Beach within the three-year timeframe.
