Fees and Charges Review 2016
Gippsland Ports has undertaken a comprehensive review of its fees and charges to achieve a fairer system that provides a better balance in income for provision of facilities and services.
The existing fee structure does not adequately cover the cost of facilities and services and does not relate directly to the actual costs of providing the services.
The new structure has been developed in line with the Department of Treasury and Finance cost recovery guidelines and aims to achieve a fair, transparent and consistent system for cost-recovery through fees and charges.
The new fee structure is proposed to take effect from 1 July 2016.
Please see the links below for further detailed information, including how to provide feedback on the new fees and charges.
A media release describes the review with comments from Gippsland Ports’ CEO, Nick Murray.
