Spoilbank confirmed as marina location

A media release from Town of Port Hedland published on Thursday 14 May 2015 states that a marina waterfront development for Port Hedland is another step closer with Council last night endorsing Spoilbank as its preferred location for the development.

Mayor Kelly Howlett said “We’ve been working with the State Government, stakeholders and community members for a number of years on a proposed waterfront development – last night’s decision takes us another step closer with Council endorsing the western side of Spoilbank as its preferred location."

“A number of studies were undertaken to explore and test the location, scope and feasibility of the precinct. Due diligence investigations allowed the comparison of both the Spoilbank and Cooke Point sites objectively based on their advantages and risks."

“After careful decision, Council have endorsed Spoilbank as its preferred location – this provides clarity around the project and allows us to get on with the job of progressing the development."
