Port development strategies

Under the Port Management Act 1995 (the PMA) all port authorities must prepare a port development strategy.

The latest port development strategies were prepared by relevant port managers before 31 December 2018 and will be updated at intervals of five years thereafter.

The strategies are currently being finalised for public release later this year and will be made available by the relevant port managers on their website.

A link to the port development strategies will be available here when the strategies are released.

Strategies have been prepared in accordance with the ministerial guidelines and focus on trade projections, land and infrastructure requirements, and transport requirements.

Ministerial guidelines

The ministerial guidelines for port development strategies are issued under section 91M of the Port Management Act 1995.

Ministerial guidelines are intended to provide clarity for port authorities on the content expectations for strategies and provide suggestions on the methodology and format.
