  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: Port and Environs Strategy will provide guidance to the Government on the planning, development and growth of the Port of Fremantle at the Inner and Outer Harbours, the required rail and road networks, and the potential for the Port of Bunbury to contribute to the handling of the growing trade task.

The Westport Taskforce Steering Committee, which includes Directors General from six government departments, the Chair of the Western Australian Planning Commission and the Chairman of the Fremantle Ports Board, will oversee the project.

In September 2017, Nicole Lockwood was appointed as the independent chair to lead the Taskforce which will be supported by a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary project office.

Many people are interested in the planning and development of the Outer Harbour, and wider freight network and we are interested in hearing their views.

Consultation and continuous communication will be integral to the development of the Westport Strategy and will occur across each of the key stages.
