Question Title

* 11. Council is considering how to manage the shoreline erosion at Tinderbox Beach. There are three options being considered:

a. Managed retreat - allowing the erosion to continue. This would involve managing safe beach access points and moving the park furniture and playground inland as required. We anticipate that the existing trees behind the beach would be lost and new planting established.

b. Construct a temporary barrier – use sandbags or sand containers to prevent further erosion to the beach. This option holds the line for an estimated ten years and allows time for further investigation.

c. Hard armoring using rock – use rock to construct a barrier at the back of the beach to prevent further erosion. This solution is long term and may impact the level of sand on the beach over time. It requires design, approvals and budget allocation.

Of the tree options shown above, which do you prefer in ranking order?

Question Title

* 12. Do you have any further comments on the proposed management options?
