For the Sunshine Coast and other coastal and riverfront locales, access to water has always been a sought-after and valuable attribute for both commercial and residential properties.
Given recent events, and the cautious rolling back of movement restrictions and with no sign of overseas travel in the immediate future, localised leisure and lifestyle activities are likely to further enhance the value of properties with access to water.
However, when it comes to adding marine structures including pontoons, jetties, boardwalks and marinas, property owners need to observe strict rules and navigate often-complicated approval processes.
Project Urban has a specialised Marine Structures division that does the heavy lifting of approval application which involves liaising with multiple authorities including local councils and a number of state governments departments. While the process does take some time, approvals are generally current for two years.
For more information, I invite you to contact our Marine Structures team. In the meantime, may I also refer you to a recent case study that overviews how Project Urban assisted a property owner to gain approval for installation of a large vessel pontoon.
