Letter to Minister for Finance & Services – 24 June 2014

Precinct has written to the Minister for Finance & Services who is responsible for Government Property NSW (GPNSW), which controls the land component of the Berrys Bay marina site.  In the letter Precinct points out that although RMS is the Government’s lead agency managing the marina proposal, GPNSW has responsibility to ensure compliance with the SHREP 2005 legislation to protect the Harbour and its foreshores and to act in the public interest. Precinct requests a meeting while there is still time for the Minister to intervene to ensure the development is brought back to the appropriate scale.
