    Sydney cruise capacity consultation begins

    Stakeholder and community consultation for Sydney’s Cruise Capacity Detailed Business Case has commenced following the launch of the first project update and an interactive engagement website.

    The Detailed Business Case is being developed to investigate cruise capacity, industry demand and assess two potential cruise terminal sites at Yarra Bay and Molineux Point near Port Botany. The project is being led by Port Authority in consultation with NSW Treasury

    An important part of the project is to seek feedback from stakeholders and the community to help inform the development of the Detailed Business Case.

    The first project update has been distributed to the Port Botany community and an interactive engagement website has also gone live.

    The website features project information, frequently asked questions and allows community members to inform the project by placing a pin on a map of the project area and commenting on how they use it.

    We want to understand how the community uses the local area, what they value and why. This information will help us to assess the options and will be used to inform planning for a potential cruise terminal.

    Local stakeholder meetings are being held over the next few weeks ahead of wider drop-in information sessions for the community, which are planned for later in the year.

    An industry engagement process is also currently underway to test feasibility and market appetite for delivering new cruise infrastructure.
