Sullivan Wrong About New Marina Near Power Station
Adele says Andrew Sullivan’s idea for a new public marina at Port Coogee is out of step with community sentiment and fails to acknowledge the vulnerable state of this already overstretched part of our coast.
“This is one of the last wild beaches and it needs to be saved, not built on.”
The beach is currently home to Australand’s industrial sand bypassing operation, which is apparently necessary due to the erosion damage caused by the Port Coogee marina.
“This beach has been engineered to death with the Port Coogee marina and the sandbypassing operation shows that more engineered works are needed to keep this going. This is no place for another marina!”
