The hardstand at the marina is due for an upgrade. To make sure we are meeting our consent requirements for the area, it needs to be sealed with asphalt, and have a new sand filtration system installed.

This work is expected to start at the end of November/beginning of December, and take about 8 weeks to complete.

To minimise disruption to berth holders and commercial operators who use the Hardstand, six temporary bays will be available for use inside the fenced area to the West of the existing Hardstand.

They will remain operational for the duration of the works.

Any work carried out in the temporary space must not create environmental contaminants. This means activities are limited to dry-sanding with a vacuum and using a geotextile drop cloth. No wet sanding can take place, nor can work be carried out in wet weather.

In the future, Council is looking to expand the hardstand to 22 bays by 2029.
