Foreshore licence conditions extended following feedback

Extension of licenses

Customers whose jetty and boat ramp licence/s were previously extended to 30 June 2019, have now been extended through to 30 June 2020. This extension is based on current licence conditions, and includes the normal Consumer Price Index increase of 1.2 per cent.

Engaging with our customers

Update July 2019

Thank you to all community members and interested parties who provided input in to discussions about occupational licensing arrangements last year. 

GMW are continuing to review and consider all feedback received in relation to occupation licensing arrangements, including but not limited to:

  • Unlicensed structures – GMW will complete an extensive survey over the remainder of 2018 and into 2019 of all structures to now include those that are currently not licensed
  • Allowable structures – criteria for appropriate engineering standards, environmental standards and address user and public safety
  • Construction standards – specifically minimum and maximum sizes, and what is appropriate at individual storage environments
  • Management controls – which seek to allow the controlled development of public and private infrastructure on storages that we manage. Management controls also help to facilitate recreational use of the waterway where this does not impact on operational requirements of the water storage.
  • Consideration of historical use and licensing – taking into account foreshore infrastructure which has been in place for some time
  • Licence terms including timeframes for licensing.

This page will continue to be updated as new information becomes available.
