The Napier Inner Harbour Development Plan, adopted by Council on the 14th July 2022, provides priorities for asset renewal within the Inner Harbour, while identifying opportunities to ‘value-add’ through the creation of new or improved public amenities.
The Inner Harbour Asset Condition Assessment identified which harbour assets, such as wharves and revetments, were in need of repair or replacement, and provided some priorities on these. The most critical priority is the replacement of the SH50 revetment at the end of the Iron Pot, which supports SH50 (Bridge Street), our primary route to the Napier Port. Its replacement, in a location inward from its current location, allows for the creation of wide stepped terraces that give sheltered spaces for gathering, and relaxing.
Improvements to the stormwater outfall here will have water quality benefits, while the space also offers the opportunity for story-telling and Māori design. Te Matau-a-Maui waka hourua will be rehomed here at a purpose-built pontoon, with space for an additional visiting vessel, and the toilet block on Nelson Quay will be rebuilt as an ablution facility and shelter, housing educational storyboards that tell the history of the traditional practices of navigation. With the addition of landscaping, lighting, seating and kororā nesting area restoration, this redevelopment will transform this part of Ahuriri.
Planning and design work to commence 2022.
