The Point Boston Peninsula is a master planned community development that stretches over 750 hectares of natural peninsula about 18 kms from Port Lincoln. It is ideally located for weekend getaways from Adelaide or as a place to live.

A Scheme description and By-Laws protect the integrity of this development area and help maintain and preserve the natural heritage across the peninsula.

A Community Corporation Committee formed by lot holders is responsible for the management of common property - including land and infrastructure. The Committee is also responsible for ensuring the By-Laws and the Scheme Description are upheld. The community corporations appointed managers are chaged with ensuring all owners and occupants uphold these simple rules.

For further information please contact our Corporation Manager -

Peter Affleck or Steve Geyer at Whittles on 08 8291 2300 or Peter.Affleck@whittles.com.au  or  Steve.Geyer@whittles.com.au

Bushfire Management Plan

We have been advised by the CFS that each individidual household must be solely responsible for their bushfire plan and maintenance of their fire fighting equipment. The Corporation is responsible for maintaining fire breaks and reducing plant growth around the residential development areas. This responsibility does not extend to vacant blocks.

Sand Mining on the Peninsula

Sand Mine

A company related to the previous owner of the development site at Point Boston held an extractive mining lease (EML 5774) which expired in November 2012.  The previous operator was DK Quarries Pty Ltd of North Shields and the mine had a designated production rate of 100 – 1000 tonnes of sand per half year.

The site has had numerous extractive mining leases over the years. The sand was predominantly used for road works in and around Port Lincoln.

The land on which the expired mining lease sits is now Community Corporation common land and the Corporation is working with DMITRE for rehabilitation of the site. The cost for levelling and revegetation may be met by application via DMITRE to an extractive area rehabilitation fund (EARF).

Any future mining of the area will be subject to a full investigation of impact on all matters of heritage and native vegetation and the consent of the Community Corporation as owner.

For the time being, the Corporation is keen to reinstate the land to its natural state and in keeping with the ecological standing of the Point Boston development, permission for future mining is unlikely to be given.

 

 

Native Vegetation Management Plan

In 2003 a survey of the Point Boston Peninsula was conducted on behalf of the South Australian Mariculture Pty Ltd. The report details some rare plant and bird species as well as some feral weeds and animal infestations.

The report details the Heritage Agreement Areas and identifies a requirement to prevent illegal access to the heritage areas and prevent the clearing of any additional fire breaks unless there is a risk to life or property. 

The Corporation are now trustees of this land. By working with local and government agencies we aim to prevent further degradation and enhance the precious environment within our peninsula.
