Master planning consultation underway in Queensland

Master planning consultation underway in Queensland

(Posted on 20/12/22)

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) in Australia is undertaking public consultation on the draft master plans and overlays for three of North Queensland Bulk Ports’ (NQBP) ports.

DTMR is leading the priority port master planning process encompassing the Ports of Abbot Point and Mackay/Hay Point (as one priority port).

Weipa, Abbot Point, Mackay and Hay Point trading ports all come under the care and authority of North Queensland Bulk Ports.

The consultation includes public information sessions and will run until 20 January 2023.

Port master planning helps guide the development of ports in a way that balances long-term economic growth, job creation, environmental values and community interests while protecting the Great Barrier Reef.

NQBP has been closely involved in the lead-up to the consultation process, providing advice on the long-term plans for its ports, and key environmental, cultural, and social considerations.

The draft master plans and draft port overlays and how to make submissions are available on DTMR’s website.

Almost half of Queensland’s trade by tonnage passes through NQBP ports who take great care to provide safe, sustainable and competitive seaport services to efficiently facilitate the process.
