Clarence Council have advised that due to the changes associated with property ownership of land around this access point and the proximity of the temporarily relocated multi use foreshore path, the use of this access point for vehicles on a permanent basis will be restricted.
Council has delayed formalising the relocated foreshore path, into an all-weather surface around the development site, expecting the new development to commence, however as the time frame for commencement of the new development is unknown the amenity of the foreshore path will be rectified this week.
Providing a sealed surface for the path will only satisfy one concern, therefore Clarence Council will be requiring the access gate to be closed, unless access is required for a special occasion or event.
BYC has arranged the access operation and will use our lock on the gate. It should be noted that all vehicular access through this access point will be restricted during the construction period of the new development, after which the access point will eventually become the principle access point to the BYC.
We understand that restricting vehicle access now may increase the inconvenience to BYC members however this must be undertaken for public safety. BYC has been assured by the Clarnence Council that they will work with BYC to achieve maximum convenience to all parties.
BYC access will be on a limited basis: -
Open Wednesday (Sailing Season) from 12noon and locked early Thursday morning.
Open for Crown Series 15th - 17th February
Open for Saturday Sailing
Open for Sunday Sessions (Until end of March)
Thank you for your understanding.
