Port Development Strategy (PDS)

The PDS has been approved by the Minister for Ports and Freight the Hon Melissa Horne MP.

The purpose of the PDS is to:

  • Articulate a medium and long term ‘port development vision’ to the port’s stakeholders;

  • Create economic value through supporting industry understanding, confidence and investment;

  • Maximise economic outcomes through supporting efficient allocation of critical port land and infrastructure;

  • Assist in overall supply chain efficiency through the provision of transparency in the broader transport network task and infrastructure requirements;

  • Provide strategic information to support an understanding of significant environmental and social issues, which have the potential to impact port operations and development; and

  • Support engagement with stakeholders and clients.
