JUL 2022Have your say

We would like to thank the community for attending the recent information sessions in Crowdy Head and Harrington in June. For providing their valuable feedback on the project proposal as part of the “Have your Say” process which closed 15 July.

The project team will now take time to carefully consider your feedback and will develop a consultation summary report. We will notify you when this is available.

Project information

In December 2020, the NSW Government announced $2 million of maritime stimulus funding to replace the Crowdy Head Boat Harbour jetty.

Crowdy Head Boat Harbour is an important harbour on the mid north coast for boat users, as it is a safe and accessible harbour with no river mouth or coastal bars to cross.

The existing infrastructure in the harbour is nearing the end of its useful life and is in need of some major maintenance or should be replaced.

The objective of the project is to improve safety and accessibility for users of the harbour by upgrading the main harbour jetty (Jetty 1) and removing the decommissioned jetty (Jetty 2).

The proposal and REF will consider the following:

  • Removal of the concrete Jetty 1 structure and replacement with a new floating pontoon structure
  • The new Jetty 1 will provide 18 vessel berths serviced with individual water and electricity supply. The concept design accommodates various vessel sizes and includes one temporary or short-term berth to be used for overnight stays or distressed vessels
  • Removal of the already decommissioned Jetty 2
  • Dredging of the harbour to improve navigation and clearance depth for vessels.
