Ocean Reef Marina
Ocean Reef Boat Harbour Jetty/Boat Ramp Upgrade
Works to upgrade the boat launching ramps at the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour are scheduled to commence during April 2015 and are expected to be completed by 31 August 2015.
Supported by the Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme the much needed upgrade to the boat ramps/jetties will utilise materials and intrastructure that will be transferred into the new Marina.
For further information on the ramp closures and other hazards please visit the Department of Transport.
Environmental and Planning Approvals
The City is currently progressing the environmental and planning approvals processes in collaboration with the Department of Planning and the Office of the Environmental Protection Authority.
The planning approval process is via an amendment to the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) boundary.
Following the City's referral of the marine based components of the development to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for assessment, the level of assessment was determined as a Public Environmental Review (PER). The City is currently finalising the necessary studies and investigations that will contribute to the information required for the PER.
As far as possible the environmental and planning assessments will run concurrently and it is anticipated that both the MRS amendment and the PER will be advertised for public comment early in 2016.
The concurrent review of both the environmental components and the MRS amendment will allow for consideration of the social, economic and environmental factors via a holistic planning and environmental assessment.
The City will continue to liaise closely with the relevant government departments and agencies throughout the environmental and planning assessments phase at the same time as progressing the development of the Local Structure Plan and business case.
