Development Application



The proposed changes are designed to maintain and improve:

  • the usability of the existing space
  • the use of the waterway for the provision of much needed boat storage
  • visual amenity of the heritage wharf to residents and visitors
  • ease of operations
  • security

Operations would not change:

  • No change to current drop-off and pick-up restrictions is proposed – operations would remain the same.
  • The marina would be used by a mix of commercial vessels, similar to those currently using the marina.
