Feedback closes 13 February 2022

The objectives of this project are based on those developed for Primrose Park, Cammeray as included in the Small Water Craft Storage Strategy, adopted by Council in 2018. The Strategy highlighted problems caused by an excess of small watercraft at the foreshore of Primrose Park, below Folly Point. Many of the watercraft stored in these locations appear unused and unseaworthy, and some are stored in such a way that access to the foreshore generally is compromised, and adjacent bushland is regularly damaged. Council allocated funding in its 2021/22 budget for the investigation, consultation and design of a small watercraft storage facility in Primrose Park. The proposed locations for storage have been chosen to be sympathetic to the ecology of the park.

The final works will provide small watercraft owners with fair access to storage space on public land on the foreshore of Primrose Park, Cammeray. As there is limited space, Council will ensure that interested watercraft users have the opportunity to apply to become an authorised user of the new convenient, purpose-built storage facilities on the foreshore.

An appropriate design is proposed, that does not interfere with other park users, including access along the foreshore, and protects bushland from damage caused by current informal storage of small watercraft.

Notification will be left on all water craft currently stored at Primrose Park, informing owners of the impending new arrangement and how to apply for a space. The notification period begins 6 December 2021 and any water craft not claimed by 6 March 2022 will be removed and destroyed.
