Sydney cruise capacity: consultation underway
Work on the Detailed Business Case is progressing, with the first round of community drop-in sessions held in Sydney.
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 in Sydney. The project is being led by Port Authority in consultation with NSW Treasury
To help inform the development of the Detailed Business Case, Port Authority has sought feedback from stakeholders and the community following the release of the first project update and the launch of an interactive engagement website, yoursaycruisecapacity.com.au.
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. The information gathered will be used to help assess the options and to inform future planning.
The feedback was shared at three information sessions held in November which gave the community the opportunity to meet the project team, learn about the information gathered during this first phase of consultation and how Port Authority is responding.
An industry engagement process is also currently underway to test feasibility and market appetite for delivering new cruise infrastructure.
Further information sessions will be held by mid-2020.
