  • Environmental considerations

    about 1 month ago

    As the waterways at Bayview are environmentally sensitive, the proposal to upgrade the boating facilities is currently under assessment regarding local government guidelines, policies and the Environmental Planning and Assessment (EP&A) Act 1979.

    In addition, we have engaged consultants, Marine Pollution Research, who have undertaken an Aquatic Ecology Survey of the seabed within the vicinity of the boat ramps to understand the potential impacts of the proposed design on the local environment.
