Ulladulla Harbor Development Scheme on the Way
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash has welcomed an announcement from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that the re-elected government will provide $790,000 to construct 21 new berths at Ulladulla Harbor.
The new marine berths form part of Council’s proposal to develop the Ulladulla Harbor as a tourism and recreational destination while enhancing its role as a working harbor.
Mayor Joanna Gash welcomed the funding commitment, describing it as a tremendous show of support for both the local community and the wider Shoalhaven area.
“Once constructed, the proposed berthing facility at Ulladulla Harbor will deliver jobs and further economic growth to the region, as well as provide a quality tourist attraction,” said Clr Gash.
“The removal of a rock shelf and dredging needs to take place prior to the construction of the 21 berths. The NSW State Government has committed $400,000 to the project and this will used to excavate and dredge the proposed site. These works are scheduled to take place over the next few months,” added Clr Gash.
According to Clr Gash, the Council has already undertaken a number of projects to enhance the harbor foreshore and surrounding areas, including the construction of walkways and viewing platforms, replacement of the boat ramp with a pontoon and foreshore beautification works.
Mayor Gash also said that another key component of Council’s plan for Ulladulla Harbor is to increase linkages between the harbor and the town center.
