MARINA LEASES can take further comfort from the marina’s participation in industry accreditation programmes relating to operating standards and environmental compliance as outlined below. Performance criteria Leases and concessions by their very nature set minimum performance criteria and sanctions for failing to meet these criteria. This again is an area where the typical lease/concession legal instrument falls short on delivering the legal framework required to incentivise the pursuit of excellence in the development, operation and re-investment in marina infrastructure. The incorporation of criteria within marina leases or concessions that reward measurable performance or outcomes is in the benefit of all stakeholders. Examples of these performance criteria could include: • ISO or National Marina Standards • Maintenance of service and infrastructure standards as measured by the Global Gold Anchor programme • Maintenance of environmental outcomes as measured by the International Clean Marina programme • Performance against other criteria specific to a particular marina, which might include boating public access to services and facilities at the marina, an example of which is the Sydney Harbour Destinations Plan in Australia [https://www.rms.nsw. boating-destinations-plan/index.html] The incorporation of these positive incentives within marina leases for the maintenance of standards for infrastructure and public outcomes is far more effective than minimum standards and sanctions in delivering positive community outcomes in the long term. Marina lease/concession frameworks that incorporate the principles of sustainable occupancy costs for rents, provide long lease terms with renewability for re-investment or meeting performance criteria and adopt administrative terms that are not a burden to the landlord or lessee provide the framework for the delivery and operation of long term high quality and valuable marina infrastructure. They incentivise ongoing improvement and the pursuit of excellence. They promote competition based on quality of services and infrastructure, not just price. They create tourism attractions for towns and regions with commensurate economic activity and employment and they support an industry whose sole purpose is the enrichment of people’s lives through access to all forms of recreational boating. Our industry must clearly articulate this message. The benefits to the community and a proactive and long term vision from government policy makers will be in the best interests of their constituents. In some respects, it requires a change of mindset from industry and government alike, to adopt a proactive and collaborative approach where both parties can meet or exceed their expectations and where the ultimate beneficiary is the broader community.
