Following last week’s storms Council staff have been inspecting the coastal damage on the western side of the peninsula. YPC are also working with The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (who own and maintain coastal jetties) to determine the extent of damage and repair to those facilities.
The damage and destruction to the iconic jetty structures at Port Rickaby and Port Victoria is obviously distressing to these communities and the economic effect will be widespread to the broader community of YP.
Council are currently working with the State Government who are the owners of the structures and are responsible for significant structural damage.
Council staff are continuing to clean up townships and roadways following the storm events.
If you encounter any storm damage please contact YPC here
