Minister for Transport, Planning and Lands Rita Saffioti announced in September 2017 that a multi-agency taskforce, chaired by Nicole Lockwood, would outline a long-range vision to guide the planning, development and growth of both the Inner Harbour at Fremantle and the future Outer Harbour at Kwinana.
