Frankston Beach Preservation

By Rebecca Richmond

The renourishment of Frankston beach has begun. The project is being delivered by Department of Environment and Primary Industries and Frankston Council through the Victorian Government’s $9.4 million Protection of Port Phillip Bay and Beaches program.

DEPI regional director Travis Dowling said beach preservation was vital. “Seasonal sand movement at Frankston Beach has been exacerbated by storms that have caused significant sand loss,” he said.

Mr Dowling said about 15,000 cubic metres of sand would be brought in to help protect the beach from the effects of coastal erosion. “This will not only create a wider sandy beach and improve public amenity, but will also help stabilise nearby sand dunes,” he said.

But peninsula activist Jenny Warfe said there was mounting evidence linking erosion at peninsula beaches with the controversial channel-deepening project. “Something has changed in the bay in the last few years,” Ms Warfe said.

Ms Warfe led the Blue Wedges group against the channel-deepening project. Works are expected to take about seven weeks to complete. The beach from the Olivers Hill car park boat ramp to Kananook Creek will be closed to the public from 6am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
