PLAN: Shaun Miller encouraged local boaters to have their say on how the new plan would address boating infrastructure on Eyre Peninsula.EYREPeninsula boaters are being asked to raise their needs to be included in the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s South Australian Boating Strategic Plan.
The department is drawing up the plan to boost boating participation, guide investment in maritime infrastructure and improve boating experiences across the state.
The plan will focus on the four key geographic regions with high levels of boating activity, which includes the western region encompassing Eyre Peninsula, Whyalla and the Far West Coast.
The department has engaged the Boating Industry Association (BIA) to assist in developing the plan and to engage with stakeholders.
Port Lincoln BoatSupplies is a member of the association and dealer principal Shaun Miller said while local infrastructure was in good conditionthe plan was a good idea to have funding available for future projects.
“The facilities in Port Lincoln are great and the council does a great job with those facilities,” he said.
“There are facilities up the West Coast, Elliston comes to mind, that are in need of an upgrade.”
Mr Miller said boat ramps at Anxious Bay and Farm Beach could become inaccessible at different times of the year due to seaweed buildup and would become greater assets if made available all year round.
The boat plan aims to make it easier for councils and other bodies to access funds for eligible projects byreducing red tape and identifying priority issues.
The department is engaging with boat users, councils and the wider community to collect information for the plan.
An online survey has also been set up for people to provide feedback on boating and infrastructure in their region.
Tumby Bay District Council’s works manager Damian Windsor said the survey was a chance for the general public to provide input to identify infrastructure needs and priorities.
“The priority for us is to maintain and improve what we’ve got rather than putting new facilities in,” he said.
Mr Miller said local boaters should complete the online survey and provide their input on boating facilities.
