Council to take action on erosion at Wild Cattle Creek
THE COUNCIL has changed its attitude towards erosion at Millennium Esplanade, Tannum Sands.
In July the council said it wouldn't be taking action other than erecting a safety barrier along the four metre drop at the edge of the park, instead adopting a 'wait and see' policy.
However today, during the second council meeting of the year, council officers are recommending works to the creek mouth are undertaken "as soon as practical".
Officers also want the council undertake a 'sand push' to move sand from the mouth of the creek back to the beach at a cost of $280,800.
The back flip comes after a report from GHD Engineering Consultant commissioned last year.
That report will be tabled in the council meeting today and it's up to the councillors to decide whether or not to move forward with plans to fight the erosion which has been escalating since 2012.
