Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron
Proposed expansion involves three storey hard stands against the cliffs and a new three storey club house higher than the existing road.Wet berths will be sheltered by a rock wall construction out into the Bay. Waste from maintenance work boats will be trapped in an interceptor pit before being released into the Bay. The Squadron has written to Madden requesting that an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) be dispensed with. Beaumaris Conservation Society has written to Madden requesting an EES before approval is given for work to commence. It is ironic that MBCL came into existence in 1969 because of a proposal to construct a marina in Beaumaris Bay!!
