Port Development Strategy Approved

3 April 2019

Port of Portland’s Port Development Strategy was approved by the Hon Melissa Horne MP, Minister for Ports and Freight on 3 April 2019. This PDS replaces the Port Land Use Strategy published in August 2009 (August 2009 PLUS).

The Port Development Strategy (PDS) is prepared in accordance with Section 91K of the Port Management Act 1995 (VIC), which requires all Victorian Ports to periodically identify and articulate capacity and infrastructure issues within the port. Ministerial guidelines have been followed.

The PDS examines a range of issues facing the Port in considerable detail and, where relevant, offers key recommendations for their mitigation or resolution.

The Port acknowledges that implementation of these key recommendations will require cooperation between the Port, Port tenants, local councils and the Victorian, South Australian and Federal Governments.

Port management looks forward to working with all stakeholders so that together we can deliver solutions to the issues we all face to deliver benefits to the Port, the Portland community and Victoria.
