A Master Plan is in the final stages of being developed for the Foreshore development from the initial Concept Plan. This will be put to Council for approval 21 December and then go out to the community for comment once approved.
In November work was well underway for Phase 1 of the 400 metre long sea wall between Gale and Queen Streets.

The wall is 4 metres above sea level, with a 3 metre wide crest to it, and a 1 in 2 slope and is being undertaken by Italia Stone Group who have had extensive experience on this type of project.
Feature rocks are being placed within the wall, together with large rocks for seating and access down onto the beach.
Sleeved piles have been installed in readiness for Viewing Platforms
