Torquay Coast Action will work closely with the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) and the Green Army team to implement weed control and revegetation at the location to link in with work previously conducted in the area.

Torquay Coast Action President Glenda Shomaly said the grant allowed the group to create a visible and lasting impact on the coastal environment.

“The site has been in a depleted condition following earthworks to repair the bridge and install the new storm water outlet.

“These works will continue to help improve the conservation value of the area and enhance native habitat in the depleted coastal dune scrub,” she said.

Works will include weed control, laying of jute mat to help stabilise the soil and planting with indigenous vegetation with follow up maintenance conducted by GORCC and Torquay Coast Action.
