The Beachmere Project

rock wall and land reclaim

Tackling land erosion

Early council records dating back to the 1950′s show that the Beachmere property and others like it along this coastline have suffered significant land loss due to a number of serious weather events and natural erosion.

Prior to the development of this property the degraded state of the rock wall  was clearly evident and the property was at risk of damage from surging tides. In an effort to protect the property from further weather damage the rebuilding of the ocean wall was the first challenge of many.

Following an extensive consultation and approval process with the Moreton Bay Regional Council and various environmental protection agencies, the rock wall reconstruction was approved for development. This involved the establishment of a new rock wall at the original 1950′s high water mark, effectively reclaiming 230sqm of land. A three year engagement with the council ensued proper research, findings and consultation between parties concerned meaning this development posed no harmful threat to the the sensitive surrounding marine park.
