Slip­way a key con­sid­er­a­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ONE of the con­di­tions of the ap­proval of the ma­rina re­de­vel­op­ment was that the own­ers sign a deed of agree­ment that the slip­way re­main in op­er­a­tion for three years, and that they would as­sist the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil in iden­ti­fy­ing a new lo­ca­tion for the slip­way.

Mayor Ju­lia Leu said “the clock is not tick­ing yet” as the three-year pe­riod wont kick in un­til the deed is signed.

Ms Leu said that she was con­fi­dent the DSC, The Reef Ma­rina, State Gov­ern­ment and slip­way stake­hold­ers could re­solve the mat­ter of find­ing a new home for the slip­way within three years.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tions are in their pre­lim­i­nary stages, but the process has be­gun.
