WA­TER­FRONT AC­CESS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LOOKING BACK -

With ref­er­ence to your ar­ti­cle “Ma­rina Un­veils Plan”, The Reef Ma­rina is – and al­ways has been – ab­so­lutely com­mit­ted to pub­lic wa­ter­front ac­cess.

Our draft mas­ter­plan sub­mit­ted to Coun­cil last year en­vis­aged a float­ing “WaterWalk” which we be­lieve would be unique in North Queens­land and a tourism draw­card.

Re­spond­ing to the Coun­cil­lors’ re­jec­tion of this pro­posal, our new mas­ter­plan sub­mit­ted ear­lier this month [ Gazette, Jan­uary 28, page 10] fea­tures a fixed board­walk span­ning the wa­ter­front and com­ple­ment­ing our pro­posed Pub­lic Plaza and wa­ter­front din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas.

I look for­ward to the day that I can proudly share Port Dou­glas’ re­gen­er­ated wa­ter­front with res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike.

An­drew Hooper-Nguyen, Di­rec­tor, The Reef Ma­rina
