The Harbour Trust has decontaminated the former HMAS Platypus naval base on Neutral Bay and aims to revitalise the site as a foreshore urban park.
The Harbour Trust is preparing a Management Plan for Platypus to guide its revitalisation. Public comment is being invited to inform the preparation of the Management Plan. Once prepared, the draft plan will be placed on public exhibition for further community comment.
Following the high level of community engagement at the Planning Open Day on 14 May 2016, the invitation for public comments has been re-opened, and comments will now be accepted until 17 June 2016. Comments provided by that date will be considered by the Harbour Trust in its preparation of a draft Management Plan for Platypus.
