Summary of Information
Council has determined that a bylaw is the most appropriate method to address the problem of ensuring that moorings in such mooring management areas are allocated in a fair and safe manner and thereby avoiding hazards to navigation safety.
Council has drafted a bylaw in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002. The bylaw gives Council the power to ensure the safe and efficient management of the water space at Waikawa Bay by implementing a long-term, integrated planning solution to resolve conflicts in mooring allocation within the waters of Waikawa Bay by balancing the needs and aspirations of mooring owners and applicants, aspirant marina berth holders, and the commercial marina operator (Port Marlborough New Zealand Limited) and other commercial interests with the needs and aspirations of tangata whenua, adjacent property owners, non-boating users of the area, other stakeholders and environmental considerations.
