WSC Boating facilities plan 2019
Released recently by Wellingyon Shire - Council has not made a decision again this time.
Breakwater Safe Harbour update
The Wellington Council is seeking feedback for a boating facilities plan for Loch Sport. Deadline Feb 28
For many years the boat club has been advocating for a breakwater to protect the deep water jetty and boat ramp. A more pleasant spell at the jetty overnight may bring more visitors to Loch Sport. Drop in at the boat club or dinner at the RSL
The Hotel also supplies a courtesy bus to go there.
If any of anyone can make a comment please go to this request.

Marina in Lake Street
Design chosen by Wellington Shire Council in 2007
The reasons for the community not accepting the WSC chosen plan for Lake Street:
The overlay of the carparking in the plan totally out of scale to vehicles in the overhead.
Proximity to no boating swimming zone possible pollution from stationary vessels and extra vessels using the water way to access boat ramp.
Boat Ramp use would add many extra vehicles and trailers to Lake Street traffic.
Vehicles waiting in line would inhibit the view from the café next to the Lodge and exhaust fumes from such.
