Collaboration sought on coastal management

Eurobodalla residents who love their coast and want to play a role in its management are being encouraged to join Eurobodalla Council’s Coast and Environment Management Advisory Committee.

The committee enables residents, business people and community groups to participate in managing local beaches, rivers and coastal settlements, through areas including natural resource management, land-use planning and broader strategic input.

Five positions are currently available to community group representatives in three districts: Durras to Surfside, Batemans Bay CBD to Malua Bay, and Moruya to Potato Point. Nominations are also sought from oyster growers and people with a background in coastal science.

Committee chairwoman Mayor Liz Innes encouraged community members to apply, particularly younger residents.

“We are currently preparing a coastal management program for the whole shire so it is an important time for residents with a keen interest in coastal management to be involved,” she said.

“We are seeking a diversity of views, which is why the committee includes representatives from business, tourism, sporting groups and Landcare.

“We want to focus on the legacy we leave to our youth and future generations so they can enjoy our coastline with the same freedom we enjoyed.”

Details, including eligibility criteria and how to make an expression of interest, can be found by searching ‘Coast and Environment Management Advisory Committee’ on Council’s website at

Applications close on Tuesday 24 October 2017. Media Release
