The CEO of the Boating Industry Association (BIA), Howard Glenn, invites all stakeholders involved in the boating, yachting and marina industries to complete a survey to inform the South Australian Boating Strategic Plan to boost participation and guide investment in maritime infrastructure across South Australia.
The plan is being led by The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) together with assistance from BIA and will extend across four key regions in New South Wales: Central, Western, South East and Murray Regions.
Howard Glenn said that local knowledge and user information is a vital to this new approach to funding and will make it easier for councils and other potential project partners to get boating facility funds for eligible projects and reduce red tape.
“We need to hear from people who have an interest in local waterways, or have new and innovative ideas about boating facilities, events, destinations and safety. We invite all stakeholders to contribute to the plans by completing our short survey or contacting the project delivery team,” Mr Glenn said.
You can complete the survey here (before 9 December 2016).
We also invite feedback via email:
