We the undersigned support the expansion and improvement of foreshore access and open space in Mortlake and more broadly across the City of Canada Bay Council area.

This is necessitated by increasing residential density on the Mortlake Peninsula and in our local government area.

Two major blockages in our local area are the RMS Depot in Hilly Street and the ‘Jemena’ site in Palace Lane Mortlake. 
 
We support the dedication of the RMS Depot at Mortlake as a foreshore park. 

In the past this works depot and heritage listed slipway were used for the maintenace of ferries operating in Sydney.  
At the moment very occasional maintenance of our local punts is undertaken on a small part of this site. We fully support the continued operation of our much loved Mortlake punt/car ferry.

This work can be undertaken elsewhere or in the short term on the land currently utilised adjacent to the slipway until access to a more suitable location is arranged.
 
We support the dedication of this site as a foreshore park either under the jurisdiction of the City of Canada Bay Council or Crown Lands.

Government needs to ensure that the heritage of this significant maritime site is protected and enhanced for  future generations.
 
Finally we urge council to ensure that no development on the ‘Jemena site’ is approved without dedication of land  for foreshore access.
 
These initiatives by the NSW Government  and council  are  vital to expanding open space and foreshore access and improving connectivity from Cabarita Park and Breakfast Point to Wangal Reserve and beyond.
