Brunswick Heads Harbour Upgrade
Intro: 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 master plan, and will inform this upgrade project.
The priority for this project is to provide a modern facility that meets current safety and accessibility criteria.
As part of the planning and design phase, Transport for NSW will engage with harbour users, adjacent landholders and the community throughout the project, including the planning, design, and construction stages.
TfNSW has engaged surveyors to determine boundaries, depths and existing layout of the harbour. This data will be used to develop design options for the on-water infrastructure upgrade and will be presented to key stakeholders.
TfNSW is in the process of identifying utility services and will complete minor repairs and public amenity improvements to the land based infrastructure along the harbour that will support the upgrade work.
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.
