at Gladesville Bridge Marina

Title of the image box

Our marina shares a proud 100-year history as part of Sydney’s ‘working harbour’, and we continue to provide employment and commercial activities as part of the broader network of marinas in NSW.

Improving Gladesville Bridge Marina

We are proposing improvements to create a contemporary and sustainable marina to meet the growing needs of Sydney's boating community. Some of the key features of these improvements include:

  • Realigning the structure to reflect earlier sight lines of the marina, and maximise view corridors.
  • Increasing capacity by 30 boats, (from 99 boats to 129), to accommodate greater numbers of smaller boats, as well as some larger boats.
  • Relocating 29 boat spaces from swing moorings to the floating pontoons.
  • Proposing 114 boats on floating pontoons.
  • Maintaining 15 boats on swing moorings.

Updates and News
As the project progresses we will be adding new information to our Facilities Improvement Page. We invite you to visit our page regularly for updates.

Community Feedback
We have heard from the community that they wanted more time to provide feedback. We have extended the feedback closing date until 10 December 2018. We will consider and report back on all feedback in early 2019. Please provide up to date contact details in order for the team to be able to provide a response.

What do we know and what are we proposing?

We know from previous consultation with the community that there are areas of potential impact that concern you. The preliminary design considers the potential impacts from the proposed improvements to our marina.

Visual

During the preliminary design and visualisations we considered potential impacts, and:

  • Realigned the structure to reflect earlier sight lines.
  • Stored smaller boats closer to foreshore and larger boats more distant.

Noise

  • Ceasing slipway operations, meaning a reduction in industrial noise.
  • Ongoing repair and maintenance work only on boats on pontoons.
  • Ongoing noise compliance management plan to meet regulations.

Parking

We know that parking has previously been a concern for local residents and for our marina. We will be:

  • Doubling existing parking capacity at the marina.

Amenity

  • Enhancing mobility access by relocating swing moorings to floating pontoons.
  • Reducing the spread of the moorings to free up parts of the bay.
  • Beautifying the waste storage area adjacent to the driveway.

Navigational corridors

  • Changing the navigational corridor so that larger boats are less prominent at the marina.
  • Freeing up space currently used by some of the swing moorings.

Please check back often as information will be updated regularly.

Our engagement with the community

The marina is keen to meet with the local residents and boaters at the information sessions, or hear from them via email at communityinput@gbmarina.com.au or by phoning 1800 810 680 (free call).

We recently hosted two community information sessions on 19 and 20 October.

We are planning another information session during the development of the EIS and prior to public exhibition. The session is to provide feedback on how inputs from the community have been considered.
