Minor Ports Program
This involves constructing and maintaining wharves, jetties, moorings and associated port facilities in keeping with the current needs of the NSW commercial fishing fleet. The upgrading of ports and port services has streamlined commercial fish handling.
The NSW commercial fishing fleet currently has access to some of the best facilities in Australia. The emphasis of the program in future years will be on maintaining those facilities and adapting them to the changing needs with continual liaison with the industry.
Lands has adopted a policy of improving ports and providing better amenities for the fishing industry. These ports also benefit the local community and tourists by providing a focus for people to enjoy the waterfront and associated port facilities.
Details are availabe on current port developments at Batemans Bay and Ulladulla.
The principal objectives of the Minor Ports Program are:
- to maintain a network of safe harbours along the NSW coastline;
- to construct and maintain port facilities for the commercial fishing industry; and
- to manage port related assets to minimise public risk liability.
