Steer the Spoilbank Marina Development in the Right Direction

Published: Tuesday, 11 June 2019 at 8:56:12 AM

Expressions of interest are now being sought from local residents to become members of the Spoilbank Community Reference Group (SCRG), which will serve on behalf of the community’s interests during the Marina’s design and development.

The WA State Government secured the Marina’s long term feasibility in this year’s State Budget, with $95 million allocated to the Project.

Members of the SCRG will be required to attend bimonthly meetings, fairly represent the views of their organisation or group and disseminate information to the broader community.

Mayor Camilo Blanco encouraged locals to consider joining the SCRG, a body which will be at the forefront of offering a user perspective to the Project’s Land Activation Working Group.

“Along with many locals, I’m pleased that the Marina is finally at the stage where concepts are being turned into detailed designs.

“The SCRG will serve in an advisory role, providing information to the Land Activation Working Group and influencing key decision makers.

“This will be one of the most significant economic and social space activations for Hedland in decades, providing better amenities for sea farers and fostering job creation.

“Due to the scope of the Marina’s impact on Hedland, it’s important as many perspectives as possible are captured during its development.

“I encourage those who are interested to submit your application before 4.30pm Friday 14 June 2019.”
