The Floating Pontoon Idea

This project is at a very preliminary stage.

The idea was initiated originally by the Trefusis Estate, but is now FSC led. The plan would be to remove our current slipway and replace it with a floating pontoon/access bridge design going out into the river to below the spring low water mark giving all tide access.

Among other benefits, this would enable disabled access to the water.

Such a development would require multiple consents. Potential grant assistance discussions are commencing. This project will only proceed if grant funded.

But the new Clubhouse is the number 1 priority project.
