Council decision to support
At the February 2018 Council Meeting, Council resolved to provide a letter to the Beaumaris Bay Consortium that:
1. supports the National Heritage List nomination for Beaumaris Bay proceeding to the next phase of the assessment process;
2. acknowledges that the Beaumaris Bay National Heritage List nomination could have implications for the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron (BMYS);
3. acknowledges that the BMYS future development project requires the completion of an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) and other approvals, such as obtaining a planning permit, before any redevelopment of that site could proceed; and
4. conveys this resolution by letter to the Beaumaris Bay Consortium and Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron.
The National Heritage Register nomination process involves the current application being accepted by the Department of the Environment and Energy. If accepted, the Department will initiate community consultation based on the nomination received and examine the evidence provided in the nomination.
