A sand nourishment program is planned for Clifton Beach.

Approximately 4,000 cubic metres of sand will be introduced to the beach north of the sea wall. The land-based sand will be transported by truck via the Captain Cook Highway and Clifton Road to Arlington Esplanade where it will be unloaded directly onto the beach.

This work is being programmed to commence on Monday 25 May 2020 and it is estimated that it will take approximately five weeks to complete this program, weather permitting.

While this work is underway, it will be necessary to close parts of the beach due to safety reasons.

Council apologises for any inconveniences that this work may cause and will endeavour to keep disruptions for residents to a minimum.
