POPULAR with locals and tourists, Jimmys Beach coastline has been decimated by gail force southerly winds and huge ocean swell during last Wednesday’s storms causing the Boulevarde to be closed with the road collapsing just metres from homes.
Some local residents are of the opinion that Council’s expenditure on sand dumping has been a total waste of time and money.
Myall River Action Group’s representative and local resident, David Glyn, told Myall Coast News, “The environmental destruction that has been caused by continually dumping sand on the beach is appalling.
“The only way to stop this problem in the long term is to put something there that can’t be washed away.
“The sand from the blocked river could then be pumped back to Jimmy’s Beach in an effort to save the beach from further erosion.
