Project information

Project background

In December 2020, the NSW Government announced $2 million of maritime stimulus funding to replace the Crowdy Head Boat Harbour jetty.

Crowdy Head Boat Harbour is an important harbour on the mid north coast for boat users, as it is a safe and accessible with no river mouth or coastal bars to cross.

The existing infrastructure in the harbour is nearing the end of its useful life and is in need of some major maintenance or should be replaced.

What are we doing?

The objective of the project is to improve safety and accessibility for users of the harbour by upgrading the main harbour jetty (Jetty 1) and removing the decommissioned jetty (Jetty 2).

The proposal and REF will consider the following:

  • Removal of the concrete Jetty 1 structure and replacement with a new floating pontoon structure
  • The new Jetty 1 will provide 18 vessel berths serviced with individual water and electricity supply. The concept design accommodates various vessel sizes and includes one temporary or short-term berth to be used for overnight stays or distressed vessels
  • Removal of the already decommissioned Jetty 2
  • Dredging of the harbour to improve navigation and clearance depth for vessels.

What's happening now?

We are currently reviewing the feedback received as part of the "Have your say" process, and are investigating some changes to our proposal. Further assessments are need for any changes to the displayed concept design.

These changes and further assessment will be included in the submissions report, along with responses to all suggestions and issues raised during the consultation period. We will update you when this document is available.

Next steps

  • Completing additional assessments

  • Publishing the submissions report

  • Finalising the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) with any changes from the feedback period

  • Obtaining project approval to proceed

  • Seeking tenders for the work.
