Shorefront Development, Galle City

Coast Conservation Department has already taken initiatives on proactive approaches for stabilization and development of shorelines with added values for the coastal resources, resulting economic gains for the local communities and opportunities for coastal investors. As a “Marine City”, the Galle City coastal areas are much important in the contest of current maritime developments based economic approaches. Hence the Galle Coastal areas have being developed with increased shoreline infrastructure and enhanced landscape & seascape for tourist attraction for leisure and recreation, while reducing the risk of coastal erosion and other hazards.

In the “Shoreline Management Plan, Galle City”, potentials at each segment of coast have been identified, and activities have been introduced accordingly. Shorelines, beaches, near shore and coastal lands have been designed to suite with the proposed activities. The city shoreline has divided in to three zones and is proposed to develop in three stages.
