Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services has decided to withdrawal the proposal of establishing a Maritime Heritage Precinct Marina in Pyrmont Bay.

Withdrawing the proposal means Roads and Maritime will not be seeking planning approval as described in the review of environmental factors (REF) (January 2019).

Roads and Maritime’s decision to withdrawal the proposal is based on public submissions in response to the REF and feedback received from other government agencies.

The key issues raised in response to the REF include:

  • impact on safe navigation in and out of Darling Harbour
  • socio-economic impacts to surrounding vessel-based businesses
  • reduced amenity for nearby residents with regard to the proposed new location of the Pyrmont Bay Ferry Pontoon

We would like to thank the community and all stakeholders for your feedback and involvement in the project to help bring us to this final decision.

Community engagement

Consultation with key stakeholders and the community started in 2015 and continued throughout the REF process to identify key issues and understand community values. The feedback received was important in developing designs that are being assessed in the REF.

All comments received during the various engagement activities, including meetings, phone and email communications, information sessions and submissions will be considered. Issues raised will be collated and a response will be provided in a submissions report following the REF display stage.

Input from the community and other stakeholders is important in informing key approval and final design decisions.
