Port of Townsville Liason

The Port of Townsville has a Community Liaison Group (CLG). MICDA was invited in 2019 to have representation on the CLG and has been continuously engaged since then.


The CLG members include Port customers, community groups and individuals who have a strong interest in the operations of the Port, Port sustainability and future Port development plans.


In exchange for regular updates on Port activities, CLG members provide valuable feedback, opinions and input into our operations, stakeholder engagement and future plans.


Members are encouraged to contribute to the bi-monthly agenda which includes trade performance and potential new cargo, environmental monitoring results, major project information, cruise and defence ship attraction progress, and community engagement initiatives.


MICDA has been engaged with the Port of Townsville specifically about the disposal of maintenance dredge material and is exploring various options with the Port. The CLG meets four times per year and memberships are reviewed every 12 months.
