Proposals which will affect the ability to operate or affect the fabric of a quay, slipway, jetty, wharf or public landing place will only be supported where:
1. the local character is protected and is of an appropriate scale, appearance and use.
2. Pedestrian access to the water and launching facilities will be maintained and where possible enhanced.
3. there is no loss of land used for port/harbour related use unless it can be demonstrated that the port/harbour use is no longer viable.
4. development will not reduce or compromise any existing facilities or services.
