The CEPG Inc. is a group of people who care about the coast and dunes along the section of Adelaide metropolitan coastline between Grange and Semaphore Park.
In November 2016 The Coastal Ecology Protection Group (and others) commenced legal proceedings against the City of Charles Sturt in relation to a 3 metre wide Coast Park Path to be built between Semaphore Park and Grange. Judgment on the case was handed down on the 21st of September 2017 in the Supreme Court of South Australia by Justice Blue.
Why the Dunes between Grange and Semaphore Park are so important
The CEPG Inc. works through education, research and advocacy.
Over the last 25 years, some of the achievements that the CEPG Inc. has accomplished include:
- Facilitation and funding of permanent environmental informational signage at all beach access paths in the CCS area;
- Building of Tennyson Dunes viewing platform and educational signage with other dune care groups and Kiwanis;
- Creation of the first local native coastal plants brochure now re-printed many times;
- Lobbying for retaining beach bins;
- Environmental walk and talk tours;
- Neighbour to neighbour native plant and animal education resulting in large scale weed removal and native plantings;
- Backyard native plant nurseries;
- Monitoring, recording and reporting local coastal flora, fauna and processes;
- Regular community forums with environmental expert speaker;
- Researching, evaluating and communicating the latest data on this unique environment;
