Boats, usually dinghies, left on the grassy verge will have a luminous sticker fixed to them giving their owners fair warning that they will be removed and disposed of within a certain time-frame.
Commenting on the initiative, Cr Steve Tucker said that Tanilba Bay would be targeted as part of Port Stephens Council’s second sweep of beaches to improve public access and ‘clean up’ the public parks and reserves.
“Council has boat racks available at a nominal cost and these are where the dinghies are to be stored,” he said.
“There is no place for the storage of larger craft such as sailing boats,” he added.
“Our foreshore reserves are becoming incredibly popular on weekends and during school holidays as tranquil places to escape from the lockdown restrictions.
“We want to present them in the finest state of upkeep,” he stated.
