Community engagement

How we’re engaging with the community

We know how much people love Adelaide’s beaches. It’s a place to go to relax and unwind, connect with friends and family or enjoy a dip in the water and many other activities.

There will be some impact for residents and beach goers as works are undertaken as part of the state government’s securing the future of our coastline project. 

We want to ensure that those who enjoy coastal activities and who live and work along Adelaide’s metropolitan coast are kept informed during all phases of the Securing the future of our coastline project.

Aboriginal Engagement

The project team has commenced engagement with Kaurna via the Department for Environment and Waters First Nations Partnership and Reconciliation Unit to discuss broader engagement and project involvement opportunities.

The government liaise with local businesses who may be impacted by beach works. We work to minimise disturbance to the community as much as possible by not operating during school holidays or on weekends.
