Solutions for the Future of The Entrance Channel
The first step will be to set aside budget funding and to also seek grant funding to help guide the actions needed to improve the condition of the Tuggerah Lakes system and The Entrance channel.
Preliminary designs for a long-term solution to the channel's silting will be developed, while a dredging program will be considered in the short-term.
Council will draw on previous studies conducted into the 2013 and 2015 to help guide the work.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said the weekend's storm event had been very distressing for all affected residents.
"The Entrance channel has been a longstanding issue for the Coast community, and we all want to see the area thrive and residents able to feel secure," she said.
"Finding the best solution is a difficult and complex challenge and we are committed to getting it right. That requires us to look at the studies that have been conducted into the area, and to also seek funding support from other levels of government.
"This is a time to work hand-in-hand with the community and all stakeholders.
"The solution may well be expensive and while dredging may help in the short-term, we need to plan and act for the long term."
