The call for tender comes as a result of Council’s decision at its General Meeting on 26th October to implement a variety of car parking options at Weinam Creek to provide a range of choices to consumers. In the case of the car share scheme, ” … it is proposed to lease the Council-owned residential property in Banana St to one or more private sector car-hire operators. This site will serve as a collection/drop-off centre. It is not intended to operate as a servicing or garaging site.“
These services will be operated by commercial entities and Council will not regulate their operation other than as a lessor.
The Weinam Creek ferry terminal is the single point of access to the mainland for residents who live on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands (SMBI) – a community of over 6,500 people.
Council is committed to encouraging transport solutions that meet the demands of a growing population, as projections indicate SMBI will eventually accommodate a population of 23,000 people.
The island community makes over 1.2 million trips each year by barge and ferry services to access employment, recreation and medical services.[spoiler title=”To request a copy of the tender documents, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org”][note color=”#FFFCCC”][contact-form subject=”Enquiry via CoochieIsland.com” to=”email@example.com”] [contact-field label=”Name” type=”name” required=”true” /] [contact-field label=”E-mail” type=”email” required=”true” /] [contact-field label=”Ask Tracey Justice for the tender documents” type=”textarea” required=”true” /] [/contact-form][/note][/spoiler]
