Beach job to go ahead

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

A BID for a $300,000 grant to ex­tend a Quinns Beach groyne has failed but the City of Wan­neroo will do the work.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City ap­plied for two grants in 2018-19 through the De­part­ment of Trans­port’s coastal adap­ta­tion and pro­tec­tion grant scheme.

The State Gov­ern­ment an­nounced suc­cess­ful ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing the City’s $125,000 re­quest to re­plen­ish sand at Quinns Beach.

Mrs Roberts said the sec­ond re­quest was for $300,000 to ex­tend one of the groynes.

“These works have been planned based on sound tech­ni­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tions and have strong com­mu­nity sup­port,” she said.

“Whilst it is dis­ap­point­ing that the City was not suc­cess­ful in this sec­ond re­quest, the groyne 2 con­struc­tion works at Quinns Beach will be un­af­fected as the works were bud­geted for as part of the City’s 201819 cap­i­tal works pro­gram.”
