Significant costs cited!dougkFri, 23/06/2017 - 1:33pm

The Council's Agenda for the meeting to be held at Gloucester on Wednesday 28 June has just been placed on line. (

The summary of the  recommendations regarding a boat ramp at North Arm Cove is as follows:
1. Based on the report developed by RHDHV, and citing the significant costs and associated impacts of constructing a boat launching facility (specifically, a boat ramp) at Medina Bay, it is recommended that no boat ramp be constructed in this location.
2. That no publicly owned land within the Village Zone (RU5) of North Arm Cove is dedicated to the development of a boat ramp.
3. That Council staff liaise with the RMS (Boating Now program) to undertake a bathymetric study of alternate sites for a boat ramp outside the Village Zone (RU5).

The Council Agenda is attached to this article. The Boat Ramp report begins on page 64.

Copies of the Royal Haskoning DHV report will be available for perusal at the Library annex of the Community Centre between 9-11am and 2-4pm tomorrow Saturday 24 June.
