Point Grey Marina development on Mandurah council agenda

Point Grey Marina development on Mandurah council agenda

The contentious Point Grey development will be back on the agenda at the City of Mandurah council meeting tonight, after Shire of Murray councillors deemed the marina "unsuitable" in June.

It has been a long-running battle between the Shire of Murray and developers Tian An Australia since the 300-berth marina was proposed, which would require the dredging of a 2.5 kilometre navigation channel across the Peel-Harvey Estuary.


Residents have been vocal about their opposition to the Point Grey Marina with dozens of locals protesting the development at the Shire of Murray council meeting in June.

At a meeting on June 25, Murray councillors approved a change to their Town Planning Scheme, removing a marina as permissible use under zoning around Point Grey and therefore deeming the development "unsuitable".

In a report prepared for council to consider this week, City of Mandurah officers recommended that council authorise officers to prepare a submission supporting the proposed amendment to the Shire of Murray Town Planning Scheme.

The Mandurah council will vote tonight on whether it supports the Shire of Murray's bid to block Point Grey Marina.
