Mooring regulation streamline review
The Department of Transport (DoT) is continuing to progress the implementation of recommendations from the Mooring Regulation Streamline Review. The comprehensive two year review process, involving extensive key stakeholder consultation and two rounds of public consultation, saw the Minister for Transport approve key changes to the Mooring Regulations 1998.
The changes will allow for significant improvements in the management of moorings in WA including the introduction of an opt-in short term casual use system to enhance the availability of moorings and boost usage, changes allowing DoT to provide moorings for rent and short term storage for vessel owners and a new wait list for Mooring Control Areas (MCA) that have reached capacity such as in the Swan Canning Riverpark that will see a fairer and more equitable allocation of licensed moorings.
Unfortunately, there has been a delay in amending the Mooring Regulations 1998 to align to the outcomes of the Mooring Regulation Streamline Review. Parliamentary staff are currently working to redraft the regulations that will underpin the planned improvements to the mooring system in WA and DoT continues to be committed to implementing the changes as soon as possible.
The Mooring Regulation Streamline Review 2014-16 provides an overview of the review process, the outcomes and information on the implementation process.
