A proposal by Vopak Terminals to construct a liquid fuels storage terminal at Port Botany will be on exhibition from today for community feedback.


The Department of Planning and Environment is keen to hear the community’s views on the application which seeks to:

  • construct seven liquid fuel storage tanks holding up to 200 mega litres of flammable and combustible fuels, such as petrol and diesel
  • construct new pipelines under Friendship Road to an existing Vopak terminal
  • install fire protection systems.


A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views.


“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive and this is taken into consideration when we develop our recommendations,” the spokesperson said.


“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
