Deputy Premier, Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning The Honourable Jeff Seeney


Call for feedback on International Marine Precinct

Wednesday, October 03, 2012


Gold Coast boaties, residents and industry are invited to have their say on the environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed $390 million Gold Coast International Marine Precinct.


Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Jeff Seeney said comments and submissions received through the public consultation period would be fed into the Coordinator-General’s decision-making process.


“If approved, residents and visitors to the Gold Coast will ultimately benefit from this investment and can expect to see major improvements to the Shipper Drive site in Coomera,” Mr Seeney said.


“It will also give a welcome boost to tourism, one of the four pillars of the economy, as well as employment.


“Public feedback will bring us a step closer to determining whether or not the project stacks up.”


The project includes plans for:

  • 28.9 hectares for a marine industrial zone
  • a stacked dry boat storage facility for about 290 vessels
  • 4.5 hectares internal marina with about 110 berths
  • external marina within the Coomera River with 280 multiple-sized berths
  • 9.3 hectares mixed-use precinct—sales showroom, office space, small-scale light industry, yacht club, restaurants and retail outlets, and
  • A TAFE college including a Centre of Excellence and a workshop devoted to marine-industry training


Mr Seeney said the public would have four weeks to have their say and make a submission on Harbour Island Pty Ltd’s proposed 63.5-hectare development from Monday 8 October, 2012.


Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 2 November, 2012. The EIS can be downloaded from this link ‘EIS Download Page’. Interested parties can also call (07) 5526 1500.
