SAVE BERRYS BAY - STOP SUPERYACHT MARINA - PROTECT SYDNEY HARBOUR

This petition had 586 supporters

Waverton Precinct started this petition to NSW Government (The Premier, the Treasurer and the Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight)

We oppose a massive superyacht marina in iconic Berrys Bay, an historic and beautiful bay in world renowned Sydney Harbour surrounded by public reserves. This 154 boat, 120 car overdevelopment of the Bay proposes 34 superyachts 25-45 metres, 50 large yachts 15-25 metres and 70 more boats in the dry stack on land. It will overwhelm Berrys Bay and destroy the charm of the quiet bay and magnificent views to and from the foreshore parklands. We support sensitive development of the former maritime facility but only at a scale and style consistent with the values of this rare place.

IF YOU VALUE THIS WONDERFUL PUBLIC ASSET:

 

·        SIGN THIS PETITION

         Find extensive information on The Save Berrys Bay website www.saveberrysbay.org.au

·         Read the amended DA in detail on North Sydney Council’s website www.northsydney.nsw.gov.au bv the DA Tracker under D 260/2015. A model is on display at Council offices.

·  VICTORY! DA REJECTED!!!!!!!!!!!!

On 5tb May 2016 in an historic decision thew Joint regional Planing Panel rejected the Development application as fully explained in the UPDATE.

HOWEVER SIGNING THE PETITION IS STILL IMPORTANT because we must now work with government to achieve an acceptable outcome consistent with the natural and heritage values of the Bay and Waverton Peninsula.
