Have Your Say on the updated draft Boatshed and Bathing Box Policy
Published on 31 August 2020
After extensive consultation with the community from May to June this year, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has incorporated your feedback and updated the draft Boatshed and Bathing Box Policy 2020.
You are now invited to provide your thoughts on the updated draft Policy.
Council’s draft Boatshed and Bathing Box Policy 2020 aims to protect and improve coastal land for the benefit of all users, including boatshed and bathing box licensees.
The draft Policy sets out the rights and responsibilities of boatshed and bathing box licensees.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Sam Hearn “thank you to everyone who had their say earlier this year. Your feedback and thoughts have helped us shape and inform the draft Policy”.
Changes implemented to the draft Boatshed and Bathing Box Policy 2020 after community feedback include:
- Licensee eligibility
- Connection of utility services
- Graffiti removal
- Asbestos management
- Renewal of licence at end of term.
“Council’s existing Boatshed and Bathing Box Policy was adopted in November 2000, so it is fair to say it was due for a review and refresh. The draft Policy aims to protect and improve coastal land for the benefit of all users, including boatshed and bathing box licensees.
“It also ensures boatsheds and bathing boxes are maintained in good condition and guides upgrades and improvements as determined by Council as the relevant land manager," concluded Councillor Hearn.
