The purpose of HBF's Guidelines for a Sustainable Harbour are to feed into the Harbour-front Enhancement Committee's (HEC) Harbour Guidelines and to inspire best practice in harbour development. 

HBF's Guidelines have been designed specifically to highlight select recommendations for the physical design and development of individual projects and broader planning efforts across the entire harbour. HBF’s Guidelines are structured around the three pillars of sustainable development (Social, Economic and Environmental) as HBF recognizes that the harbour has a direct impact on the quality of life, health and prosperity of our city.
