Update: July 2018

This project has been delayed significantly by VCAT proceedings. Following a decision in favour of the project in May 2018, the Shire is fast-tracking this project to avoid further delays.

At the Council meeting on Tuesday 24 July, the tender was awarded to the Simpson Construction Company.

The ramp works are to be done between August and November 2018 and the Jetty to be constructed between August 2018 and March 2019. No works are to occur onsite in the busiest months of December and January. 

Update: October 2016 

A planning permit application has been submitted for this project and is currently in the advertisement stage. This enables community members opposed to or in favour of the project to have their views considered through a democratic process.
