Cairns Regional Council seeks funding to address beach erosion
Under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements Program, Cairns Regional Council will seek $329,000 to address sand erosion at Holloways, Clifton, Ellis and Trinity beaches.
The funding allows for sand nourishment and beach reprofiling to reduce the risk of further erosion.
It is proposed that works at Holloways Beach, covering 7500 metre³ of sand, will be timed to coincide with the installation of proposed groynes.
If the funding application is successful, Council aims to complete the works following the 2020 wet season.
Funding applied for:
• Holloways Beach Northern Sand Nourishment, $220,000 for 7,500 metre³ of beach nourishment
• Clifton Beach, $90,000, for beach nourishment
• Trinity Beach, $4,500, for beach reprofiling
• Ellis Beach, $15,000, for beach reprofiling
