Marina Redevelopment Report – April 2019
Some reasonable progress has been achieved in the last month. We have finally received Crown Consent and Clarence City Council have acknowledge they are happy to proceed with assessment of the Development Application. They now have 42 days to process the application and, in this time, it will be publicly advertised. The planning department at Council will then make their recommendation to go to Council for approval. We will need to campaign our members to lodge positive representations as well as try to get local business to support by means of lodging representations. Hopefully we won’t have too much trouble and there won’t be too many negative representations lodged. We have purchased an additional mooring this month bringing the total now to three. Phil is working on others. We met with Bellingham Marine yesterday to discuss them quoting the project. At this stage given that we are wanting to use the Bellingham product, there is no point in going to tender as such, but we have requested that they go to the market on components such as piling and demolition. They are hoping to have a price back to us in three weeks for the on-water component of the works. Once we have this, through Burbury Consulting we will then work on getting pricing for the remainder of the works such as the Dinghy Storage. This will then allow us to go to financiers with fixed construction cost. We have also been advised that Council will be going to tender on the Public Pier in September to commence works in March 2020. We are writing to Council to confirm this.

As the Suns continue to rise, tipping remains a big challenge but well done to new-comer Wes Costa - 8/9 in another tough round. Carlton are due for a win & the Tigers are missing key players in the battle against Port.Good luck for round 4!
