Randwick City Council Environment Levy is a good investment

Make a submission to Randwick Council by the 7th November 2013. Safeguarding our beaches for $1.80 a week per average household is cheap at the price.

Dark stormy future for Coogee Beach?

Dear Editor

Randwick City Council’s environmental levy needs to continue.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has found that sea levels could rise by 80 centimetres by 2100. Others are saying Bondi Beach will be narrowed by 45 metres as a result.

How much will iconic Coogee Beach and the recently cleaned up Malabar Beach be reduced by? How will surfing be affected at Maroubra Beach and around the world?

There will be an infrastructure cost along with the vanishing metres of sun baking area. Higher sea levels means higher tides and storms breaking against our promenades, walk ways, storm water pipes and grass reserves.

No, we need the levy so that Council retains the funding to research and deal with such issues.

Randwick City Greens Councillor Murray Matson.
