Save Ocean Beach

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

Update: June/July/August 2010

While there have been changes in sand levels in recent months, the 'benign' winter weather has meant there has only been fluctuations rather than any significant reduction in the beach profile (sand levels) on the Ocean Beach.?? The high beach profiles on Ocean Beach for the first part of the year have?? provided a good buffer recently. Areas of rubble have been exposed then recovered from time to time, and there has been no need to 'top up' sand levels so far this winter. All access points remain open. Having said that, care needs to be taken when accessing the beach, as a 'step' is present along much of the beach.

On 31 August 2010, the Ocean Beach Project Team (which was established in 2009) submitted a report to the Community Development Committee on progress to date with all studies. The Project Team advised the committee that further information is still coming to hand, and that a further report will be made to Community Development Committee when studies into an old landfill site have been completed.
