Between 9 November and 7 December, Central Coast Council conducted community consultation which included a values and uses survey for Wamberal Beach, drop-in formation sessions at Erina Fair and Wamberal Surf Life Saving Club as well as virtual drop-in sessions.

How could the broader community get involved during the phase 1 consultation?
Council knows that good coastal management outcomes can only be achieved through active involvement and support from coastal communities. Council has been working with the community on a long-term management solution to the Wamberal Beach erosion issue for some time.
During the phase 1 consultation, the community were invited to:
- complete the online values and uses survey (now closed)
- speak with project staff and coastal experts at community information sessions (there were in person and virtual sessions available)
- submit a question online and have the project team get back to them
We will continue to seek the communities experience and input throughout the current MHL coastal engineering and economics study that is underway.
Phase 2 consultation is now open, click here to find out more.
