Once again the Shoal Bay foreshore has been seriously eroded. An on-site meeting was quickly arranged with Port Stephens Council Management including the General Manager, the outcomes will discussed at the AGM.

The response from locals and the general public has been very positive in regards to the redevelopment of the foreshore park. Unfortunately a number of people have taken exception to the planted trees and have poisoned them.
Council is going to undertake replanting and put up notices in regards to the poisoning and will take action against any culprits.
