Community Petition about Impact of Coastal Erosion on Doddis Beach

Petition to Protect Halls Head Beaches - Progress Update #1

Updated February 20, 2023

The community response to the petition on the impact of coastal erosion on Doddis Beach through Christmas 2022 and New Year has been tremendous. Over the period, we continued to collect signatures from people using the beach, picnic areas, and amenities along Robert Point - Doddis Beach - Victor Adam. To date, almost 500 signatures have been collected and that number is steadily growing! 

This support demonstrates a real community concern about increasing coastal erosion and degradation to the Robert Point and Doddis Beach area in Halls Head.

Online, we have a good start to the digital petition and we will rally to get more signatures. As support increases on, the petition will be get more visibility. Please continue to share our link and we encourage you to use Mandurah post codes when signing the online version, as Council will be looking for these signatures, in particular.


Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.

Mandurah Council Response

The Council has responded to our concerns about Robert Point and Doddis Beach with some work on the beach in recent days. During the week, a front end loader moved seaweed from the vacation swim area up to the eroded access ways on Robert Point. 

We've also received an email from the Council and will be organising to meet with the Executive Manager Natural Environment, and a few members of the Council team responsible for the beach management, about our concerns and your feedback very soon.
