The following scope of works will be delivered at the site:
The overarching purpose of this project is to improve the standard of this recreational boating facility, utilised by locals and visitors alike.
Council’s Maritime Infrastructure Plan (February 2014) identified replacement of the existing boat ramp, installation of a pontoon jetty and enlargement of the sealed parking area in the medium/long term scope of works.
Total project funding = $655,000
Feedback from the Bermagui area in response to the “Understanding Our Place” community engagement process, which subsequently informed the Community Strategic Plan (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.
