Feedback Sought on Future Options for Mapua Waterfront Area

Feedback Sought on Future Options for Mapua Waterfront Area

Options for the long-term development of Council-owned land near the Mapua Waterfront open for public feedback this weekend.

Tasman District Council has been canvassing community opinion for the past six months on the best way to manage the area long-term. This was done through a public survey attracting more than 700 responses, followed by meetings and forums with a wide range of Mapua community groups, clubs and organisations, as well as discussions with iwi.

Community Development Committee chairman Peter Canton said that work had helped the Council formulate a range of Council-proposed future options and alternatives for the waterfront area.

“Now we need everyone who is interested in the future of Mapua to let us know what they think of the various options and help us come up with a plan that will provide a strong framework for development of the area for years to come.”

Submissions are open from 8 July to 14 August 2017.

The Mapua Waterfront Area: Options for the Future consultation document outlines a series of proposed and alternative options for several areas. These include:
• The area between Golden Bear Brewery and the estuary
• The wharf precinct
• Waterfront Park
• Remediated land along Tahi Street
• Grossi Point Reserve
• Boat ramp facilities
Other considerations discussed in the document include parking, lighting, and pedestrian safety.
The consultation document will be available at Council service centres and online at www.tasman.govt.nz/feedback.
