Funding application update - March 2018

over 1 year ago

In August last year, Randwick City Council applied to the NSW Boating Now Program for funding to upgrade the Malabar Boat Ramp. The application was based on the design which was developed in 2016/17 with input from the community.

Unfortunately Council has been unsuccessful in acquiring these grant funds in a process that was very competitive with other applicants throughout the State

RMS were offering $17 M in available grant funding for construction and received approximately 130 applications representing almost $56.5 M in requested funding.

As part of the design feasibility stage for our application, Council undertook a Risk Assessment of the boat ramp site (which was developed with input from key stakeholders such as RMS Boating Safety Officers). As a result of the assessment Council will be installing new warning signs at the top of the boat ramp to outline potential dangers on the ramp, or at the water exit/entry point.

A Geotechnical Monitoring Plan is also being prepared for Council for the existing fill batter slope and embankment located adjacent to Malabar Boat Ramp.

We would like to thank all who contributed to this project.
