As a steward of publicly owned sites on Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Trust has an obligation to consult widely, act transparently and meet the needs of not only contemporary users but future generations. Owing to their natural and cultural heritage, our sites are places of contemporary and historical significance for First Nations Peoples, local neighbourhoods, Metropolitan Sydney and Australia as a whole.
Our sites also draw international tourists, demonstrating their significance extends beyond the nation’s borders. Due to this stakeholder diversity, we need to be considered in our approach to consultation, not only in terms of what we consult on but why who we consult and how.
As the Harbour Trust evolves into an ongoing entity and embarks on important new projects funded by the Commonwealth Government, we are presented with an opportunity to consult about a broader range of subjects and engage a wider set of stakeholders.
Our draft Stakeholder Engagement Strategy & Governance Framework expands the types of matters that are subject to stakeholder consultation. It also outlines how we will collect stakeholder feedback and incorporate it into our decisions. This strategic document is underpinned by our vision to create extraordinary places on the world’s best harbour that are inspiring, loved and shared.
