Statement of Corporate Intent

This Statement of Corporate Intent (SCI) has been prepared by the Mid West Ports Authority (MWPA) and is submitted under the provisions of the Port Authorities Act 1999 (the Act).

MWPA is responsible for the efficient, safe, and effective operation of Western Australia’s most diverse port, the Port of Geraldton, planning for its future, the maintenance of facilities, while operating in balance with the environment. In 2020 MWPA will have an expanded role, with the provision of Harbour Master and marine safety services at the privately-operated ports of Cape Cuvier and Useless Loop.

MWPA also supports the region’s largest fishing industry, providing berthing facilities, maintenance, waste disposal and security to the commercial Fishing Boat Harbour (FBH). There is also the opportunity to develop the FBH to support local industries, tourism, diversifying revenue streams and to demonstrate MWPA leadership as a supply chain enabler across the Region.

This plan incorporates all the requirements necessary for the MWPA to fulfil its obligations under Part 5, Division 2, of the Port Authorities Act 1999.
