Consultation sessions scheduled for Boyne erosion plan

BOYNE Island-Tannum Sands residents who have not yet had their say on the draft shoreline erosion management plan can attend a public consultation on Saturday.

Gladstone Regional Council has engaged consultancy company Ecosure to develop the draft plan.

The company is seeking input from the community to ensure the final document provides a clear structure for the sustainable use and development of land vulnerable to erosion, Mayor Gail Sellers said.

The draft plan relates to the area between the tip of Boyne Island at Lilley's Beach camp ground to the north and Colosseum Inlet near Hummock Hill Island to the south.

Ecosure will conduct consultations on Saturday from 9am-3pm at Wyndham Park, Boyne Island.

"We are keen to hear residents' views on the document and its findings, as well as documenting anecdotal stories, photographs and history of the changing shoreline," Cr Sellers said.

"The feedback will be considered for inclusion in the final document which will be considered for adoption by council in June this year as our management plan for the BITS shoreline."

The draft SEMP is available for viewing from the council's website. Submissions close at 5pm on April 30.
