Draft Boat Storage Strategy for Lake Macquarie

Investigating options for the Lake Macquarie area to improve boat storage capacity.

The NSW Government is investigating boat storage options for the Lake Macquarie area to improve storage capacity and public spaces along the lake foreshore while taking into account environmental and navigation constraints.

Background

The Draft Boat Storage Strategy for Lake Macquarie was developed in response to the NSW Government’s Boating Statement and the Regional Boating Plans which set boating safety, access and storage priorities for NSW.

These documents highlighted the need to develop strategies for the management of boat storage options to address future capacity and demand for storage facilities. Lake Macquarie was identified as one of the key areas for a boat storage strategy due to the growth of recreational boating use on the lake.

Benefits

The Draft Boat Storage Strategy for Lake Macquarie has identified a number of potential storage options to maximise existing storage capacity, introduce pilot initiatives to improve the management of moorings and investigate opportunities to improve the management of dinghies along the foreshore.

Consultation

Community consultation on the Draft Boat Storage Strategy for Lake Macquarie has closed.
