Ocean Reef Marina – Breakwater Construction

Construction on the Ocean Reef Marina breakwaters is due to commence in the coming weeks.

Stretching for two-kilometres, each breakwater is up 18.5 metres high from the ocean floor and will include approximately 650,000 tonnes of limestone and 300,000 tonnes of granite, being delivered to site from late March.

Construction of the new breakwaters and removal of the old breakwaters is expected to take up to 18 months.

For more information on the breakwater construction and truck movements in and around the site, visit developmentwa.com.au or contact DevelopmentWA on 1800 943 121 or email oceanreefmarina@developmentwa.com.au.

 

Land Optimisation

Land Optimisation

The City owns a number of sites in freehold and also manages land on behalf of State Government.

The City reviews the land it owns and manages periodically to establish whether the uses are still appropriate and provide an optimal overall benefit to the City and its residents.

In general, terms, reporting to Elected Members on land investigations is generally done via the Major Projects and Finance Committee (Committee) in the first place.  These meetings take place every two months from March until November.  Should the Committee recommend a course of action, Council’s support is required.

Major Project and Finance Committee and Council agendas and minutes are available on the City’s website, with links provided below.

 

Edgewater Quarry Project

Edgewater Quarry Project

A draft concept plan was developed by the Edgewater Quarry Community Reference Group and approved for community consultation by Council in 2020. The concept plan went out to community consultation in late 2020 and the results were considered by Council at its meeting held in March 2021. It was noted by Council that the concept plan was not supported by the majority of respondents to the community consultation and that a contamination investigation was required for the site. The City is currently progressing the required contamination investigations but no further work is being undertaken on the draft concept plan.
