Angling for interest with Marina Master Plan

The Ballina community has for many years expressed an interest in a greater range of marine infrastructure in Ballina.
With Mayor David Wright revealing that Ballina Shire Council has been developing a Ballina Marina Master Plan to encourage and guide redevelopment of the area commonly known as the Trawler Harbour site in West Ballina

“Since early last year, we have been investigating the establishment of a marina and potential land uses such as, residential redevelopment, a public esplanade, dry storage for boats, commercial areas and open recreational spaces,” said Cr Wright.

“The aim of this project is to encourage Government and private interest to consider the site for investment and redevelopment.”

“The current project plans have drawn on previous plans, detailed site assessments and feedback from the community and stakeholders.

We have now published a draft master plan that outlines a proposed approach to land redevelopment and an associated economic feasibility assessment, and now we want to hear from the public.”

“All residents in the Ballina Shire would be interested in this project, but we are particularly interested to hear from West Ballina residents, who would have received a postcard in their letterbox encouraging them to view the draft master plan on our website and provide feedback, concluded Cr Wright.

The Master Plan and supporting material can be viewed on council’s website (search Ballina Marina Master Plan), Council’s Customer Service Centre at 40 Cherry Street, Ballina and the shire libraries.
