The overall encroachment would be increased from 185 metres2  to 307.9 metres2 which would be confirmed by the assets team upon completion. The jetties would be manufactured off site from galvanised steel and treated hardwood non-slip decking.


A detailed survey had been carried out to identify any impacts on the navigation channel and adjacent mooring field including three swinging moorings being moved to the western edge of the mooring field with customers being fully consulted.
