The Slipway is gone…for now

The first stage of the harbour construction has been completed on schedule with the removal of the slipway. The Ironbark piles came out of the water with ease. The sections that were in the sand looked the same as they did when they were first installed many years ago. The timber will now be transported to Melton where it will be stacked, air dried and then ultimately kiln dried and sawn into lengths that will then return to the club to become a feature on the exterior of the new clubhouse. The clubhouse sub-committee and the General Committee were adamant that this part of the history of BYS was going to be retained. The crossheads and other timber will remain at the club while we determined where it can be re-used. We expect the preparation process for the piles to take approximately 5 months.

Club Operations

Bellingham Marine is currently on site conducting repairs on the marina fingers and T-heads. It is anticipated that the T-Heads will be operational again for our Christmas period with visitor bookings now being taken.

Planning is underway for our busy summer season including the Boxing Day Dash. Please be aware that due to the large volume of people expected to use our temporary facilities on Boxing Day a decision has been reached to close the car park for safety.

Safe Boat Harbour Expansion

MAW Civil is currently working to relocate sand from the front of the Clubhouse to the area in front of the caravan park.

The Department of Primary Industries has recently issued consent for our Coastal Management Application which is required for construction to start on the Safe Boat Harbour extension. This consent follows completion of the pre-construction planning conditions associated with the permit.

Fitzgerald Construction have delivered the majority of their site sheds to BYS in preparation for construction to commence in the coming weeks.

Communication Forums

A question and answer forum was held in the McCarthy Training Centre on Saturday 29th November 2014 for BYS members. Should members have further questions following this session please forward them to the office at info@bys.asn.au

Club Operations

BYS Club Operations continue as normal using the temporary facilities. The most recent addition to this infrastructure is the canteen site shed located next to the BYS office. The canteen will be operational from the 20th December 2014. The Club is currently working to fit this site shed out with necessary equipment, data and power requirements.

The car park boom gates have been removed to allow for construction vehicles. The car park remains accessible to only those members in possession of a car park permit.

Work is currently taking place to remove the damaged attenuator pontoon from the beach. In addition Bellingham Marine will be on site this week to commence repairs on the marina fingers and T-heads. It is anticipated that the T-Heads will be operational again for our Christmas period with visitor bookings now being taken.

Clubhouse Redevelopment

The building permit has been issued. The builders, Maben, are now on site and have started work on the Clubhouse redevelopment. They have recently installed fencing around the construction area and are in the process of moving their site sheds into position. Maben will provide regular update reports. The detail from the first of these reports is seen below.

Safe Boat Harbour Expansion

BYS continues to focus on discharging the pre-construction planning conditions with all necessary reports now with MPSC and DEPI.

Fitzgerald Engineering has started to deliver site sheds to accommodate their staff in preparation for work commencing later this month.

Parks Victoria has provided the permit to start work on the sand relocation from the Blairgowrie Safe Boat Harbour. MAW Civil has been contracted to do this work which will take place between 17 Nov – 5 December 2014. This Stage 1 sand relocation work will use trucks and excavators (no dredging at this stage) to place sand above the low water mark in front of the Caravan Park.

The slipway demolition is due to start in late November. Approximately half the slipway from the front of the Club to approximately the low water mark will be removed prior to Christmas making way for the dredging that will commence in late January 2015.
