Regulation of Marine Facilities on St Huberts Island Canals

1 Feb 11 2011





Gosford Council at its meeting February 1 2011 considered a report in respect to the current status regarding the approval and licensing of boating facilities, including moorings, pontoons and walkways. 

The council was advised that 46 pontoons and walkways are in the canals, 35 of these have development consent and are licensed by Council. Of the 11 remaining, 7 are the subject of current deferred development consents and the remaining 4 facility owners have provided written or verbal undertakings of their intentions to submit development applications for their facilities. 

In considering the matter council resolved:- 


            "Legal action be commenced against any owner of a facility which is not the subject of a
development application or consent after 1 April 2011."


Residents not yet in possession of the necessary approvals and licensing agreements should endeavour to regularise the issues before the due date to avoid council action.
