Save Ocean Beach

The natural and physical resources of Ocean beach and its adjacent City Dunedin are under threat and you can help!

The Dunedin City Council is asking for public comment and submissions on long term planning for St Clair and Middle Beaches.
Councillor Paul Hudson says the DCC is seeking local opinions and expertise rather than paying for advice from experts who don't live here.

It was just under two months ago, the DCC took emergency measures to stop further winter storms and strong seas undermining the sand dunes fronting Kettle park sports fields.

Tomorrow, Councillor Paul Hudson is expected to advise a committee meeting that the measures cost three quarters of a million dollars but another $400,000 is needed for follow up measures.

He says, the DCC has been inundated with information from the public about the history and suggested management of the area.

He says, he'd prefer to hear from locals rather than paid experts not from Dunedin and from the end of October they'll be formally seeking public comment.
