Jellyman Park carpark currently open but subject to change

Council closed the Jellyman Park carpark (including the access road) on Wednesday 7 February as we started works on the new sea protection wall along Cobden Beach. However, the contractors are now going to access the area from the other end of the beach which means the Jellyman Park carpark is open again in the interim. This may be subject to change as works progress and we'll keep our website updated. People are asked to take care in this area. Cobden breakwater road will remain closed.
