Managing coastal erosion at Mettams Pool

The City of Stirling is working with the community to investigate engineering options to address ongoing coastal erosion at Mettams Pool.

Why is the City undertaking this project?

Following a series of storms in 2009 that significantly impacted coastal infrastructure at Watermans Bay, the City commissioned a Strategic Coastal Processes Study, which was reported to Council on 9 May 2017. This study allowed the City to better understand the coastal processes, determine which areas of our coastline were most at risk and identify the nature of those risks.

One of the areas identified as most at risk from erosion was Mettams Pool and parts of West Coast Drive - which supports a popular coastal cycling and walking route and direct access to properties.

The City is now investigating a range of coastal engineering options, with the aim of balancing the protection of West Coast Drive with retaining or enhancing the attributes of Mettams Pool so valued by the community.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Mettams Pool has been identified as highly vulnerable to immediate and future coastal erosion.

    The City of Stirling is investigating a range of coastal engineering options for Mettams Pool. We are now seeking your feedback on how you use Mettams Pool and the values you place on the facilities and amenity surrounding the beach.

    Your feedback will help to shape the assessment of the coastal engineering options. These will inform the development of concept plans to address the impacts of climate change and rising sea levels in the Mettams Pool locality and surrounds for
