There are informal mooring protocols in place relating to position on public wharves. Basically the longer you stay the better your mooring spot.
New residents should moor at the furthest location from the seaward end of the jetty. As people move out from the area, everyone takes a turn
at moving along into deeper water. Adherence to this system stops any problems. It’s just fairer.
And don’t let anyone tell you private moorings under the control of NSW Maritime are transferable with houses. They are not. Applications for a
mooring have to be made by new residents and are subject to waiting lists. Again its a fairness thing as moorings are limited.
- As of March 1, 2016, Council now require proof of off-shore residency for all new applications and those renewing for 2016/17.
- Proof of off-shore residency is in the form of a current driver’s licence, rental agreement or utility notice. Boat stickers are non-transferable
and a 12 month Temporary License Agreement applies. Any person with
a sticker who proposes to sell their boat can return the sticker to Council and obtain a pro rata refund.
- These measures are undertaken to minimise a waitlist.
