Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour Upgrade
Transport for NSW Maritime is funding upgrades to the existing boating facilities at Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour to improve safe access to the waterway.
In February 2021, The Minister for Transport and Roads, The Hon. Andrew Constance, announced $2.8 million of maritime stimulus funding for the upgrade of maritime infrastructure at Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour.
The Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour is a popular boat harbour located on the far north coast of NSW. Transport for NSW was recently appointed as the Crown Land Manager for the harbour that was previously managed by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands (DPIE - Crown Lands).
Transport for NSW is reviewing relevant investigations, concepts and community feedback from previous work completed by Crown Lands for the Draft Brunswick Heads Harbour Draft Master Plan, and will inform this upgrade project.
The current harbour infrastructure needs upgrading that meets current safety and accessibility standards. The project aims to deliver:
- Increased community access and use of the boat harbour
- Increased safety for users of the boat harbour facility by upgrading infrastructure to meet relevant modern design standards
- Improved accessibility for vessel users in the tidal environment
- Metered water and power services for each berth
The project is in early stages of development of the Brunswick Heads upgrade. Once a concept design has been developed and we will seek feedback from the community as part of the Review of Environmental Factors ( REF)
Site investigations are needed to inform early project planning and design stage. Early site investigations will start from Monday 18 October and will take about four months to complete.
TfNSW has also commenced a review of existing berth licensing arrangements with current berth licensees. TfNSW will establish a wait list for people wishing to berth their vessels at Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour.
