Revising designs

Mar 2020 Design revision stage

Thank you to those who provided feedback on our Wharf Upgrade project proposed for Bells and Carols Wharf, Scotland Island.

We reviewing the submissions and revising designs based on feedback received. We're working with our design team provide outcomes that deliver both community and project needs. We anticipate these plans will be available later in March.

We've revised our project timeline with construction expected to start in August 2020.

Proposed wharf upgrade - Bells and Carols Wharf

The Northern Beaches Council is jointly funding upgrades to Bells and Carols Wharf on Scotland Island as part of the state government’s $70 Million funding program NSW Boating Now. The scheme supports initiatives that enhance the boating experience in NSW, including the delivery of boating infrastructure across NSW waterways.

The wharf upgrades aim to increase the number of boating facilities at Bells and Carols wharf and repairing the existing structures.

Key features of the proposed upgrades include:

  • Additional 19 moorings at Bells Wharf and 33 at Carols Wharf.
  • Formalised tie-up facilities.
  • Improved access for commuters.
  • New ferry shelters at each wharf and a wider ferry boarding area.
  • New moorings are not tidal-dependant and are protected from the rough wave climate.

In consultation with key stakeholders and the community, we have developed draft concept plans for Bells Wharf and Carols Wharf for broader community comment.
