Beachport Sand and Boat Ramp Management - Have Your Say

Sand Management Plan for Beachport Town Beaches

The development approval for the extension of the Beachport Boat Ramp breakwater required a sand management plan to be developed for the town beaches.  Council has been implementing this plan since December 2013 and based on the lessons learned during this time, Council has revised the sand management plan and is now seeking community comment.

The revised draft pan specifies three clear objectives, to:

  1. Monitor and manage the effectiveness and impacts of groynes including the boat ramp breakwater by relocating sand to beaches at risk or showing signs of erosion;
  2. Remove sand from the boat ramp basin to maintain appropriate service standards; and
  3. Minimise the impacts of sand relocation activities on residents, visitors and businesses.

The revised sand management plan brings forward the operating requirements of the original sand management plan with minor updates including:

  • Retaining the requirement to develop a sand relocation plan for each relocation event;
  • Email, website and Facebook notifications for sand relocation works to all interested parties, not just residents on Beach Road;
  • Monitoring of beaches using a variety of methods such as aerial imagery;
  • Exploring different technology and operating hours for removal of sand from the boat ramp basin such as pumping and dredging as well as the use of excavators;
  • Triggers for sand relocation based on the needs of receiving beaches, rather than the levels of sand on Beaches 4 and 5.

Review of Maintenance Options for Beachport Boat Ramp

Council engaged Coastal Engineer, Luke Campbell from Wallbridge Gilbert Aztec to look at options to reduce long term, ongoing maintenance for the Beachport Boat Ramp, including possible amendments to the design.

The report considers the history of boat launching facilities in Beachport, considers the cost of relocating the facility and considers alternative designs.

The recommendations from the report include collection of wave and sand data to inform numerical modelling, modelling of design alterations, purchase of dredge pipe infrastructure and a further trial of a dredge pump.
