Share Your Ideas About the Scarborough Boat Harbour
A community engagement process is underway as part of the State Government's master planning program for the Scarborough Boat Harbour.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) are inviting locals, visitors and boaties to have their say about the future of the harbour, either online or at one of the information sessions being held this month.

Member for Redcliffe Yvette D'Ath said the consultation would give locals the chance to guide future planning decisions.

Community consultation plays a key role in planning projects, and we want to understand what locals want the future of Scarborough Boat Harbour to look like, Ms D'Ath said.

This is one of Redcliffe's favourite hubs, offering boat ramps, berthing facilities, parks, playgrounds, walking trails and some of the best restaurants on the Peninsula.

Division 5 Councillor Sandra Ruck said the project was important and exciting for the Peninsula.

Redcliffe is synonymous with the water so any opportunity we have to give more locals better access to the bay, as well as attract more visitors to our stunning region, that's something I wholeheartedly support, Sandra said.

This isn't just for people with boats, it's about maximising the potential of sectors like hospitality, fishing, tourism and marine industries.

I love our harbour. I think it's one of our most important amenities, so I want it to modernise and thrive as a community precinct as our region's population grows.

Community consultation began on 9 September and will continue until Sunday, 24 October.

Feedback can be provided online or by attending a drop-in information session where residents will be able to speak to a member of the project team. This month, information sessions are being held on Tuesday, 12 October from 9am-12pm at Redcliffe Library, and on Saturday, 16 October from 9am-3pm at Dolphins Central in Kippa-Ring.

Ms D'Ath said the ideas put forward would help identify future opportunities, including improved community access.

We want to make sure the Scarborough Boat Harbour continues to be a great asset for the community now and into the future.

TMR periodically undertakes reviews of state boat harbours, including Scarborough, to ensure they remain bustling precincts for commercial and recreational use.
