Port Masterplan, Port of Sunderland

Port Masterplan, Port of Sunderland

In support of the re-energised Port of Sunderland, and with a view to Department for Transport guidelines on Port Masterplanning, Sunderland City Council appointed us to prepare a port masterplan, building on the market studies and physical assessment previously undertaken by us. (2009)

It was prepared in overall accordance with the Department for Transport’s “Guidance on the preparation of port master plans” and covered:

  • An analysis and forecast of cargoes handled by North-East ports, and an estimate of cargoes that could be attracted to the Port of Sunderland in the form of various scenarios.
  • A description of the existing infrastructure, with cost estimates for necessary repairs.
  • Locations for handling new cargoes and a description of what new infrastructure will be required.
  • A review of what would be required by a contractor involved in the construction of wind farms.
  • A review of inland access provisions and environmental issues.
  • Drawings showing how the port can develop in the short term and longer term – these provide the flexible framework for the development of the port.
