Save Ocean Beach

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

There has been a steady accretion of sand over the length of Ocean Beach since late December, although there has been a small 'step' created by wave action at the eastern end of the beach. The regular access routes to the beach are all accessible at the present time, although there is so much sand at St Kilda it is actually impeding access a little. This additional windblown sand will be shifted in the next week or two. With the more settled weather we have been enjoying recently, it is likely that sand will continue to build up over the next month or two.

Research continues into the best options for the future management of the Ocean Beach, and the Project Team tasked with carrying out this research will be reporting back to the Council later in the year.
