Bank Street Marina

Tuesday 12 December 2017

I will make a submission to the revised proposed Bank Street charter boat facility, which has had significant community opposition. The department says there are tighter controls on boat movements, noise and rubbish disposal, and that shipping containers won’t be double stacked. A floating pontoon is proposed instead of a fixed wharf. Additional public open space has been included and it is claimed that dragon boats won’t be impacted. The original proposal was highly destructive but while changes seem to represent an improvement, a backend facility for charter boats is not what was promised or what is best for this prime harbour land. It is important that you make another submission to ensure the department does not assume you support the development as a result of the changes.

You have until 15 December to comment: www.majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=8338
