Residents are encouraged to have their say on the future of Berkeley boat harbour at Lake Illawarra as we start to develop a masterplan for the site.
Berkeley boat harbour is a popular area off Northcliffe Drive at the northern end of Lake Illawarra. The land is partly owned by Wollongong City Council and Crown Lands.
This is a chance to have your say on what improvements you would like to see at the boat harbour to make it more user-friendly and appealing.
To undertake the survey, visit 'Have your say on Berkeley Harbour'.
The survey is open until 26 August 2022.
Lake Illawarra is one of Wollongong’s most significant natural assets so improvements to this area will benefit the community as well as regional tourism.
Crown Lands is undertaking consultation in collaboration with Wollongong City Council.
Berkeley boat harbour currently includes a boat launching area, green open space for recreation and picnics, a beach area for families, car parking, and is home to Port Kembla Sailing Club and a commercial takeaway.
The area and its infrastructure require upgrades to better cater to the broad range of people that use the site and to provide more modern amenities.
Input from the survey will help inform a redesign of the harbour and its surrounds to provide a revitalised precinct with better functioning public spaces and facilities.
This could include potential upgrades to the boat ramp, jetty facilities, configuration of the car park, or other on-site amenities.
The masterplan will provide a blueprint for future improvements over time and will be used to inform funding bids from Crown Lands, Council or other sources.
