Westport: Port and Environs Strategy
About the Westport Strategy
For 120 years, the Port of Fremantle has played a leading role in shaping the physical, commercial and social environment of Western Australia.
It is now WA's largest general cargo port, operating from the Inner Harbour in Fremantle and the Outer Harbour in Kwinana.
The port, which handled $26 billion in trade in 2016-17, is the gateway for most of the imported goods used in the homes and businesses of all Western Australians. For our exporters, it is a vital link to world markets.
To ensure the State's future trade needs are met, well-planned port facilities are essential.
The Westport: Ports and Environs Strategy will outline a long-range vision to guide the planning, development and growth of both the Inner Harbour at Fremantle and the Outer Harbour at Kwinana.
A Taskforce steering committee comprising key public sector directors general and the chairpersons of Fremantle Ports and the WAPC will oversee the project.
Ms Nicole Lockwood has been appointed as an independent chair to lead the Taskforce.
The taskforce will be supported by a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary project team.
