The Harbour Trust Community Advisory Committees (CAC)

Members of the Community Advisory Committee play a key advisory role, representing a range of community interests and perspectives, and providing input into the various ways the Harbour Trust engages stakeholders in the management of the sites.

  • The Harbour Trust has recently completed the renewal process for its CAC membership following the previous CAC term ending in late 2022. Following a competitive EOI process with a national reach, the Harbour Trust announced the new CAC on 4 January 2023.

    The Harbour Trust consults Community Advisory Committees (CACs), established in accordance with Part 8 (Section 57) of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust Act 2001. Our general CAC and Sub Base Platypus CAC offer balanced advice and recommendations to assist us with making informed decisions about our sites. Each CAC member contributes to the creation and maintenance of vibrant places on the World’s Best Harbour.
