All on board for creation of an icon
“This will eventually become an iconic, must-see destination for Perth and will prove an asset for locals, visitors and recreational boaters alike,” she said.
The State Government, through Land Corp, will lead the development and work with the City of Joondalup to deliver the project.
“The City will be actively involved in the decision making processes and will work collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure our interests and those of the local community are represented,” Mr Pickard said.
The Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club and Whitfords Volunteer Sea Rescue Group will also be involved to determine what relocation needs are required.
The full cost of the project will be determined once Land Corp and the City of Joondalup have completed the business case.
Federal Government funding will also be sought, with additional State Government funding to be allocated as part of subsequent budgets. Future private sector investment is expected to be worth more than $500 million.
