Yanchep Beach Joint Venture, which took over the upgrade in late February after a contractual dispute delayed it, gave the go-ahead on Monday for the ramp to open from 6am on Good Friday.

Venture chief executive Gin Wah Ang also announced the ramp fee would be waived for six months and a rent offer put to the Sun City Yacht Club, which leases its premises from marina owner Yanchep Sun City.

‘Due to the inconvenience caused and the support shown by the local community, we have made the decision to waive the ramp access fee until October 31,’ he said.

‘In recognition of its unique financial dependence on the ramp and community group status, the yacht club has been offered a one-year rental holiday for the use of its club facilities (backdated) from November 1 last year.’

Mr Gin Ang thanked everyone who helped get the project back on track, including Engineering Watering Systems, Permacast, BMT JFA Consultants, Yanchep Sun City and his team at Yanchep Beach Joint Venture.

‘It was only by working as a team with the best interests of the community in mind that we have been able to achieve such a positive outcome in such a short period of time,’ he said.

He said while work on the ramp was completed, it might need to be closed later in the year for associated works.

‘We have a little more work to do, but ideally we would like to do this work when the weather is cooler and there is a lower demand for access to the ramp,’ he said.
