Port of Newcastle Community
Port of Newcastle is more than a Port – we’re part of the community and believe that strong local ties, genuine understanding of what matters locally and transparency about our ambitions and agendas are critical to us operating a strong and successful city-Port.
Originally established in 2014, the purpose of the 20-member Community Liaison Group (CLG) is two-fold and circular:
- Communication: To act as a vital voice for communities and stakeholders that border our Port.
- Information Sharing: To share with communities the details of Port projects, decisions and initiatives and bring comments back to the group.
Our reconstituted CLG was formed following application and assessment in early 2023, with members best placed to represent the interests of a broad remit of Port users, tenants, stakeholders and neighbours selected to fill the positions.
