Council to undertake maintenance work along Basin View foreshore

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 moved.

 

“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.
