CYCLONE damage to stairs at Cooee Bay beach had made them unsafe for residents like Bill Thurlow to use.

The situation at the popular beach was just one example of the massive impact Cyclone Marcia had caused to beaches and dune areas across the Livingstone Shire.

But when Mr Thurlow reported the worsening Cooee Bay beach issue to the council there was immediate action and repairs were done.

Mr Thurlow is back enjoying his afternoon walks - but the timing for restoration work for the rest of the shire remains uncertain.

Cr Tom Wyatt, whose portfolio includes parks and recreation areas, said there was a huge job ahead.

"Council is hopeful of securing some of the $6 million that has been allocated under Category D funding by the Federal and State governments to undertake this significant task," he said.

"For both locals and tourists it is imperative that these works are undertaken as quickly as possible so residents can make the most of beach living."

Mr Thurlow said he appreciated the council's quick response and councillor Adam Belot thanked him for reporting the matter, which led to a meeting with concerned residents.
