Shoalhaven City Council is requesting the removal of all small
boats, dinghies, catamarans and trailers from the Basin View foreshore.
Council is scheduled to undertake planned maintenance along the
Basin View walking track between Palm Beach and Wool Lane, Sanctuary Point in
the coming months.
Ranger Services Manager, Michael Jarman said Council was currently
trying to make contact with the owners of the boats to ensure their swift
removal from the foreshore.
Mr Jarman said the removal of the boats would allow Council staff
to undertake general maintenance of the foreshore including mowing and upkeep
of the walking tracks.
“Council has organised a letter box drop to alert local residents
and boat owners to the upcoming scheduled works,” said Mr Jarman.
“If the owners of the boats and dinghies currently located along
the foreshore cannot be located by 21 July Council will be placing an impound
sticker on the craft, allowing the owners a further 7 days to have the boat
“Boats that remain in the area after this date will be considered
abandoned and impounded by Council for a further 28 days.”
“Depending on the value and condition of the boat, unclaimed
vessels will be either auctioned off, or used as landfill.”
“I would certainly encourage local residents currently storing
craft along the foreshore assist Council undertake planned maintenance by
swiftly removing their boat from this area.”
Mr Jarman said any questions or inquiries should be directed to
the Rangers Office on 4429 3433.
