Coastal Erosion


As a Coastal Suburb, there is some potential for Coastal Erosion and sea level rises to impact on properties, infrastructure and amenities located in close proximity to Burns Beach Foreshore.

Developments in coastal areas are required to comply with relevant WA State Government Planning Policies relating to coastal erosion.,

CoJ has developed a web page with information regarding Coastal Vulnerability BBRA encourages Burns Beach residents, and purchasers of vacant lots or properties close to the Foreshore area to review this CoJ web page and to familiarise themselves with potential implications.

It should be noted that Coastal Vulnerability concerns have resulted in some delayed Approval from WA Planning Commission forthe PEET land subdivision in the as-yet undeveloped area of Burns Beach (Northern Residential Precinct). This has resulted in delayed completion of the  dual-use path, and has also led to uncertainty on the number and locations of beach access paths.

In December 2020 PEET announced that subdivision approval has been received from WAPC, and BBRA therefore understands that the Western Boundary of the PEET Burns Beach development is now clearly defined. This should enable confirmation of beach access locations to be finalised in the near future.

The original planned locations of beach access paths are shown in the document below.
