Foreshore plan is outdated and inappropriate

I read that Gosford Council has applied for more than $2.8 million for the Ettalong Beach Foreshore.

One can only hope and trust that no monies with be forthcoming until the Gosford Council wakes up to itself, takes action on updating Ettalong Beach Foreshore Plan of Management to expectations that may, hopefully, comply with immediate and future natural environmental demands of this much-abused foreshore.

With new information about greenhouse impacts of rising seas, a re-plan of the now very outdated and inappropriate Management Plan is essential.

Prettying up the foreshore for the prime expectation of the transitory occupants of the club building, Chamber of Commerce, business groups and to hopefully attract visitors to their business certainly should not be the major reason for spending public money on the waterfront.

Rather, the money should be spent in attempting to slow the erosion, for the longer term environment survival and the betterment of the planet.

It should be spent to protect the little that is left by the judicious replanting of the now almost totally-trashed indigenous, endemic, genetic integrity vegetation of the riparian zone.

That is the only thing left now between the rising seas and the total inundation of the business houses and view getters.

When the businesses wash away, the viewing platforms will not be there either.
