Vegetation needed to prevent erosion at Canoe Point

CANOE Point Beach suffered some erosion following the recent downpour in Gladstone.

Gladstone Regional Council's environment portfolio spokesman Col Chapman said good vegetation cover was essential to prevent further erosion.

"In this instance there appears to be insufficient vegetation on quite a steep slope which exacerbates the run off.

"We (the council) will look at filling in the hole and channel so that the access to the beach can be used.

"However, revegetation of the steep slope and replacement of some coir logs will assist in slowing down the runoff."
