Tomahawk Sand Consent on Hold

Above: recent major erosion of the dunes at two thirds to Middles
Below: Marked deterioration of the sand sausages.

Below: Area of proposed dune restoration at Middle Beach

Above: Tommahawk beach.
Below: Proposed areas for sand dune restoration, and storage.

If they put the plan for sand mining and dune restoration at Tomahawk on hold due to the project not being able supply enough sand to remedy the erosion at Middles.. I assume the intention of re-contouring the dunes at Tomahawk was just a screen for acquiring the sand.. correct me if I am wrong, but was the crux of the project the 'instability of the dunes and need for re-contouring? Did not a councilor state in a letter to the editor that none of the sand was going to be used at St Clair or middles anyway?
I'm confused
