During routine monitoring of the sandbag wall, a split in one of the sandbags was detected. Subject to suitable weather conditions, the contractor is due to start the repair works on 1 February 2021. Works are expected to take between two and four weeks. There will be minor disruption to beach access whilst equipment and new sandbags are delivered. Traffic management will be in place for the safety of our contractors and the community.

The Portsea Coastal Advisory Group wrote a letter in July 2020 to Minister Lily D'Ambrosio regarding erosion at Portsea Front Beach. The letter detailed ongoing erosion along with past and current attempts to mitigate it. The letter also sought a response to previously stated strategic options to stabilise and restore the beach. The Minister's reply can be found above.

In early September over 1000 native grasses were planted behind the repaired sandbag seawall. This vegetation plays an important role in stabilising the dune system and supports the sandbag wall in protecting the foreshore. During regular monitoring of the seawall it was discovered a sandbag had torn open and slumped. Repair works on this damaged sandbag will occur before Christmas.
