Statement on Wamberal Beach erosion

The current circumstances at Wamberal Beach are regrettable and a direct result of Central Coast Council’s inaction.

Private property as well as hundreds of millions of dollars of public assets along Ocean View Drive must be protected.


The tide and weather forecasts for this week are not positive. Even at low tide, water is reaching the back of Wamberal Beach and any additional swell could prove detrimental to private property.


Council is the statutory authority for this location and the NSW Government continues to offer financial and technical assistance. In 2018 the NSW Government provided $207,500 for Council to develop plans for a long-term solution to erosion at Wamberal, and we stand ready to assist Council further.
