Coastal Sand Erosion

In reply to the Hon. T.A. FRANKS ().19 October 2022).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I have been advised:

The Minister for Climate, Environment and Water has declared a conflict of interest in respect of all matters associated with the Adelaide beach management review. The Premier has therefore appointed me as the responsible minister for this project.

Other aspects of coast management remain a matter for the Minister for Climate, Environment and Water.

The Malinauskas government was elected with a commitment to establish a scientific review of all options for sand management, with the review to include full community input and transparency, and analysis of climate change impact. Further updates on this project are available on the Department for Environment and Water's website at:
