Explanation needed for boatshed demolition

It is interesting that the Melita Boatshed is considered such a hazard that its immediate demolition is being forced on the leaseholder ("Bays group opposes demolition of historic boatshed", edition 483).

To judge from the photograph, the building doesn't look particularly hazardous, and Horsfield Bay is not a highly-frequented location, so that an intruder would have to go out of his way to place himself in hazard there.

On the face of it, this would seem like a very low-priority concern.

By contrast, the old Sheather's wharf at Koolewong has been in a highly-dangerous condition for years, is immediately visible to anybody directly off Brisbane Water Dve and has absolutely no security arrangement to prevent unauthorized access, in clear breach of all lease conditions.

Why have the authorities taken no action to protect the public in this instance?

The discrepancy in the treatment of these two leases seems to call for some explanation.
