Environmental protection • The government has committed to restricting any significant port development, within and adjoining the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, to within existing port limits to 2022. • The draft Queensland Ports Strategy builds on this commitment.
Concentrating port development The Queensland Government will prohibit capital dredging for the development of deepwater port facilities outside of PPDAs for the next ten years.

The review aims to: • improve Queensland’s productivity • minimise operational costs • maintain a similar level of service at least cost to government • deliver the most efficient and effective services • address the needs of local and port communities
Supply chains • The government is delivering frameworks to improve the coordination of supply chains to and from PPDAs including: – North Queensland Resources Supply Chain Project – Central Queensland Supply Chain Coordination Project – Bowen, Galilee, and Surat Basin Infrastructure Frameworks
Efficient use of supply chain infrastructure
Master planning Strategic use of ports Environmental protection Efficiency Master planning Planning Supply chains
Benefits of master planning • • • • • Clarity of port vision Additional economic value Better decision making Greater understanding of port needs Efficient management and delivery of infrastructure • Increased environmental protection • Streamlined development assessment process
Master planning at PPDAs • PPDAs required to prepare master plans in accordance with a statutory guideline • Required to include Environmental Management Frameworks • Community engagement and participation will be required
