There has recently been major coastal erosion threats around the beaches at Byron Bay, where local residents are now threatening to involve the state government. Local home owners have sent local council letters demanding they be allowed to protect their properties before the erosion issue becomes worse, where their properties would then have to be removed or demolished in the case of severe erosion. 

Montana Meucci's comment, July 23, 2013 7:09 PM
Recent erosion has significantly engulfed the beaches at Byron Bay. If the situation worsens properties may have to be removed or demolished, hence, landowners affected by coastal hazards can seek approval of their local council to construct works on their land to protect their property.

Savvy investors will capitalise right now on an opportunity to buy land as pending polulation increase = growing demand = shortage of land = huge capital growth

“The country’s population has been fast migrating from remote areas to inner city areas, leading to big cities becoming overcrowded. Professor Robert Birrell - “We have to get down to that figure quickly, in the next few years,” he said. “It’s to do with economies of scale – to refit a city is an enormous exercise.”
The Ecological Dimension of this issue is that the rapid overpopulation in inner cities that consequently, force cities such as Melbourne and Sydney to turn into high-rise megacities on the scale of Hong Kong, which can lead to a drastic deterioration in citizens’ quality of life. Also, suburbs within capital cities and inland rural areas have experienced a decline in density of inhabitants while inner cities and infill areas next to the coast have become more popular. Its spatial dimension occurs in Australia.
