Candlagan Creek Bridge Stairs, south of the bridge will be closed for 3 weeks
As part of the Candlagan Creek Bridge reconstruction Council will be replacing the concrete stairs south of the bridge, that run down to the beach adjacent to the beach. The existing stairs are 1m wide with a single pedestrian rail running down the stairs. We will be reconstructing the stairs to be 1.5m wide and will have railing on both sides. The new stairs will also have a longer tread that meets current standards.
Construction will be starting next Monday, the 23rd of May. Once work begins pedestrians will not be able to use the stairs to access the beach east of the bridge. The alternative access for the swimming area will be from the Broulee beach access 172m south of the bridge, opposite Iluka Street. During construction pedestrians will be detoured around the site onto the bridge while the road is closed.
It’s anticipated that the stairs will be closed for three weeks, from Monday the 23/05 to Friday 10/06.
Eurobodalla Shire Council recently endorsed the exhibition of the Draft Tomakin, Mossy Point, Broulee and Mogo Flood Study. This study represents progress towards replacing Council’s Interim Coastal Hazard Adaptation Code that is currently applied to guide development assessments in areas potentially impacted by flooding. We are writing to you as the relevant Community Association or business group within the study catchment.
As a part of the exhibition process, Council and our consultants will be holding drop-in information sessions to answer any questions about the flood study and what it may mean for local property owners. The consultant will have specific local information available on the night to answer any questions you may have. We strongly encourage you to attend if you have an interest in learning more about flooding and how it impacts your local area.
We would welcome your attendance at any of the following information sessions:
Evening meeting - Tomakin Community Hall
· 7 June 2016
· Between 6pm and 8pm
Day meeting – Tomakin Community Hall
· 8 June 2016
· Between 11am and 2pm
There is no need to RSVP and you may drop-in at any time between these hours to discuss the study.
The study is currently on exhibition and Council is asking the community for comments. You can access the study during the exhibition period at the Narooma, Moruya and Batemans libraries or the Moruya administration centre. Additional copies have been made available for overnight loans from the Moruya Library. The study is also available on-line at http://www.esc.nsw.gov.au/inside-council/project-and-exhibitions/public-exhibition
The Draft Tomakin, Mossy Point, Broulee and Mogo Flood Study will be on exhibition from Monday 16 May until Friday 24 June 2016. Information on the flood study has been provided with this letter to give you a background on the flood management process.
We look forward to meeting with you to discuss the Draft Tomakin, Mossy Point, Broulee and Mogo Flood Study. If you have any questions about the study, please contact me on 4474 1374.
