The following scope of works will be delivered at the site:
Council’s Maritime Infrastructure Plan (February 2014) identified upgrades to the existing boat ramp, launching area and access road in the short term scope of works; and installation of lighting and a pontoon jetty in the medium / long term scope of works.
Total project funding = $580,000
Feedback from the Tathra / Kalaru area in response to the “Understanding Our Place” community engagement process, which subsequently informed the CSP, included “improved recreation facilities and spaces”. This feedback links to CSP Outcome 1 Active and Healthy Communities; specifically the second goal of this outcome of “access to good quality recreation and sporting facilities”.
The boat ramp will not be available for use for approximately 3 months while the upgrade is carried out. A specific timeframe is yet to be confirmed pending finalisation of design / applicable permits and appointment of a suitably qualified contractor.
