SENSITIVE DEVELOPMENT NOT OVER-DEVELOPMENT

Berrys Bay Marina, a member of the Meridien Group, has lodged with North Sydney Council a DA for a massive marina development of Berrys Bay covering over 50% more water area than ever leased in the Bay.

This proposal would have a major impact on Sydney Harbour and Berrys Bay and on residents of Lavender Bay, Union and Waverton Precincts. It would undermine the quiet charm of this treasured recreational area enjoyed by the people of Sydney and visitors.

For over two decades Waverton Precinct and others have worked hard with North Sydney Council on the former industrial lands on Waverton Peninsula. We have won back the magnificent Carradah Park, formerly the BP Site, and the enormously successful Coal Loader Centre.

We have actively encouraged appropriate scale development of the waterfront industrial land in Berrys Bay. However any redevelopment must be consistent with the iconic status of Berrys Bay as Sydney Harbour foreshore and part of the natural and heritage status of Waverton Peninsula.

We believe the massive over-development proposed will undermine the values of the rare and scenic Waverton Peninsula.

IF YOU VALUE THIS WONDERFUL PUBLIC ASSET:

  • Find extensive information on The Save Berrys Bay website www.saveberrysbay.org.au
  • Read the DA in detail on North Sydney Council’s website DA Tracker under 260/2015 or  10/2015/260. A model is on display at Council offices.
  • Attend the major public meeting being convened by Waverton Precinct to provide detailed information to the public and assist in submissions which close on 7th September.
  • The Public Meeting will be on the open space across the road from the Coal Loader on 30th August at 11 am. Before and after the meeting Waverton Precinct members will be available to walk with people around the site and to provide more detailed information.
  • Make a submission, however brief, to Council before 7th September:- General Manager, North Sydney Council, PO Box 12, North Sydney 2059 or email to council@northsydney.nsw.gov.au
  • Public assets do not defend themselves. It is crucial that as many members of the public as possible lodge submissions opposing this overdevelopment.

The DA will be reviewed by North Sydney Council but will be determined by a Joint Regional Planning Panel following the conclusion of the exhibition and submission period.
