Erosion at Salmon Hole / Post Office Rock

Council is currently seeking community comment on a report about erosion at the Salmon Hole / Post Office Rock.  Comments can be provided on the feedback form or in writing by the closing date.  All comments received will be considered by Council and submissions may be made public. 

The closing date for comments is 8am on Monday 23 July 2018

Council received funding from the Coast Protection Board to prepare a report on the current status of erosion at the Post Office Rock and management options. The project was prepared by Patrick Hesp, Strategic Professor in Coastal Studies and Head of Environmental Sciences at Flinders University.  The Coast Protection Board has undertaken annual beach surveys to monitor erosion and this report provides analysis of those surveys.  The report also estimates the timeframe for erosion impacts on infrastructure such as Bowman Scenic Drive and Pool of Siloam. The report recommends relocation of the beach access tracks at both ends of the bay, maintaining the causeway connecting Post Office Rock to the shore and investing in a drone and software to cost effectively monitor the site.
