Marine Facilities Strategy

Marine facilities strategy

We are developing a Marine Facilities Strategy that will guide the way our community and visitors access Tauranga Harbour, Te Awanui, in the future.

Marine facilities are our boat ramps, wharves, jetties and pontoons. They provide access to Te Awanui primarily for recreation and commercial purposes.

Council has included funding in the recent Long Term Plan for the redevelopment of Fisherman’s Wharf and new boat ramps at Sulphur Point. The Marine Facilities Strategy will help guide when these facilities are required and what else may be needed to provide opportunities for you to access the harbour.

Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey in July to help us better understand how our marine facilities are used now and are likely to be used in the future. We had over 450 responses from the community that will help us to develop the Marine Facilities Strategy.

A summary of these responses has been developed. These responses have helped us understand the issues and opportunities that our future strategy needs to respond to. Ongoing discussions with mana whenua and key industry stakeholders will also feed into the future strategy.

The Marine Facilities Strategy will be developed during Phase Two of the project, which will take place in 2022. You’ll have an opportunity to have your say on the draft strategy as part of this process.
