August 2017

On behalf of residents the Dangar Island League has made representation to the Hornsby Police concerning the recent number of thefts of boats from the Brooklyn Mooring Cooperative.

It is a concern that this criminal behaviour is also causing concern to residents having to walk at night in McKell Park to the mooring facility.

Click here to read the letter sent - we have subsequently had a conversation with the Police regarding steps that may be taken.

There is to be a review of private ferry fares to the island by IPART- Independent Pricing and Regulatory Authority - the decision is to apply for the next 4 years from 1 January 2018.

The Dangar Island League after discussion with residents has made a submission to IPART that can be viewed here. It is a complex issue that has been created by the NSW Dept of Transport's decision in the past not to install an OPAL card reader for our private ferry service. A decision by IPART will be open for wider community consultation and feedback later in the year.
