Draft design for Tuross pontoon - currently being considered by Marine Parks. No tentative construction dates at this stage.
Planning is continuing for a boating pontoon on the Tuross River . Council have developed a number of proposals with the final draft plan sent to Marine Parks for consideration and a permit to proceed. A meeting was held recently to discuss the issue with Council, Fisheries and Marine Parks. The project was funded by the Commonwealth Government as a result of an election commitment. Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW (RFA) look forward to good news and concurrence from Marine Parks. Access issue Coopers Island Road
Photo indicates part of the Tuross Recreational Fishing Haven. Red line indicates Crown Road. Access to water - Bowns Creek has been fenced off creating access issues also to Trunketabella Lake. Discussions are being held with Council for a resolution.
The RFA attended a further meeting on site and a meeting at Council to gain a better understanding of this issue. This follows a letter of concern to Council in August 2019 and a visit from two Fisheries Access Officers who directed the community to Council to resolve the issue. This issue is ongoing, further meetings are planned as it is not just a straightforward matter. The RFA has put forward a number of ideas and funding possibilities to Council with the aim of obtaining access and a win/win for all parties. If access is lost access to Trunketabella Lake is extremely difficult. More news to follow.
