The Age of 25th February 2003 reported that a draft master plan had been proposed for consideration of Bayside City Council for the long-term large scale expansion of the Brighton Boat Harbour, which is leased from the Crown.

 

The plan is said to envisage a doubling of marina berths, extra "hard standing" (meaning more filling of Port Phillip), and a duplication of the existing pier. A concurrent application from the lessee sought a 12.5% (30 metres) extension of the existing 240 metre rock boulder breakwater dumped here in 1956.
