Cruise Terminal the way forward
The Cruise Passenger Terminal will be a really positive part of the future for White Bay. It will protect the area from Meriton-style residential development. Importantly, once fully operational, it will also provide 700 jobs for local young people, including hundreds of blue-collar, maritime jobs, and jobs in local restaurants and cafés. This is why it is strongly supported by local businesses and the Chamber of Commerce.
Balmain has been home to maritime industries for 150 years and maintaining a working harbour is strongly supported by the local community. A working port at White Bay will help protect the social diversity that is the best thing about this place. After all, this is Balmain, not Mosman.
