We must protect the Leighton Coast.
The south Leighton - Port Beach coast faces imminent threats from developers that would allow wall-to-wall urbanisation, preventing the creation of an adequate foreshore park to restore dunes and provide public access for our growing population.
Protect southern Leighton/Port Beach coast.
Create more sustainable foreshore in central section.
Rehabilitate marshalling yards for a 'People's Park'.
There is pressure on the government to allow intensive urban development on land where oil tanks and other industrial infrastructure once stood, and where a new public park should be provided. This foreshore would restore dunes that will protect Port Beach and Leighton for decades to come, avoiding costly seawalls. A public park would provide much-needed recreational space for a growing population and for tourists, alike.
