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. The current pontoon and jetty are ageing and not meeting user expectations or peak period capacity demands.
Council’s Maritime Infrastructure Plan (February 2014) identified installation of additional pods to the pontoon to increase capacity in the medium/long term scope of work..
Total project funding = $215,000
Feedback from the Eden 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 pontoon will not be available for use for approximately 4-5 weeks 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.
