Scarborough Master Plan gets started

Posted: 12pm 11 Jun 2021

The State Government has allocated $400,000 to the Scarborough Harbour Master Plan, with a vision to activate the precinct.

Community engagement will start in August 2021 to ensure the Scarborough community can have their say and influence planning for the boat harbour.

Member for Redcliffe Yvette D’Ath says the Scarborough Harbour master planning process was part of the state’s overall vision to provide safe and efficient access and anchorage for recreational and commercial vessels, and promote commercial and environmentally sustainable activities.

"Our approach supports the marine industry, helps protect the local environment and will boost local employment and tourism," Ms D’Ath says.

Scarborough Boat Harbour is one of eight state-owned and operated boat harbours on the Queensland coast.

Ms D’Ath says the master planning process for Scarborough followed a successful Manly Boat Harbour community engagement exercise in 2020.

“We received more than 550 responses during the Manly Boat Harbour consultation, and I hope to see the Scarborough community equally as involved in ideas for their harbour,” she says.

“Our focus is on listening to the local community and other groups who use or may want to use Scarborough Boat Harbour.

"This is an opportunity for the community to share their ideas on how the area could be better used.”

During the next 12 months, Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will carry out further investigations and analysis, including of consultation responses, to develop the Scarborough Harbour Master Plan.
