This was reported in yesterdays news. Removal of Port Stanvac site and redevelopment of the area.
A MARINA will be investigated as part of a vision to transform the former Port Stanvac oil refinery site.
Onkaparinga Council has voted to look at whether the bay at Port Stanvac would be suitable for a marina once Exxon Mobil demolished the site.
Councillor Bill Jamieson, who tabled the motion, said he wanted Port Stanvac and neighbouring O'Sullivan Beach to become a "buzzing area".
"There is already a boat ramp there, so it will add to the precinct and be a great place,'' Cr Jamieson said. "We have quite a lot of people who are into boats.''
Cr Jamieson said the nearby clifftop would also be ideal for shops and a restaurant.
O'Sullivan Beach Kiosk owner Rob MacKay said it would be a "dream'' to have a local marina.
"There is so much potential down here and there's nothing like it down this way,'' Mr MacKay said.
"It would attract more tourists and would mean people wouldn't have to go all the way down to Glenelg for a marina.''
There is also a disused jetty at Port Stanvac
