Constituency question – Loch Sport Erosion

Mr D O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (14:40): (6230) My question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. I seek for the minister to explain when there will be action to address the erosion issues at Loch Sport. It is timely that the member for Bass just talked about $850, 000 spent at Inverloch, but at Loch Sport the foreshore on Lake Victoria is in serious trouble with continued erosion there. The minister wrote back to me last year saying that a coastal processes study would be completed by the end of the year as the department tried to work out what it would do about the erosion at Loch Sport. I am aware that this erosion has got worse over summer and is now impacting on the car parks and the council-owned toilet facility in Seagull Drive. The government has been warned about this issue for years and years. There are continuing to be investigations and studies undertaken. It is time for action, and I ask the minister to explain when action will be taken to address foreshore erosion.
