Far North Holdings is implementing parts of a long-shelved plan to develop the waterfront at Paihia in the Bay of Islands. It has received $8m of the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) to build breakwaters that will protect waterfront infrastructure, including the town’s wharf and main road, and utility services such as sewage and water. For more details see our news releaseand the other tabs on this page.
submitters can use templates developed for this purpose (see below). These comprise three A3 diagrams of the areas in question. Designs / submissions can be sketched, drawn, written, include photos, etc
submitters are also encouraged to consider how they would like the shared walking / bike path from Te Tii beach to come around Nihonui Bluff and interact with the promenade. Should this be a high path at road level or a lower path?
Step 3: Public sharing of designs and collection of feedback
all community designs will be on display in the Paihia Maritime Building from May 24th.
members of the public will be encouraged to review the submitted designs and share their feedback on these
Step 4: Collate feedback and commission professional design
the steering group will collate the community designs, and all the feedback received, and this information will be forwarded to a professional design firm by way of a brief
the design firm will be tasked with interpreting the community’s ideas and producing a draft plan. Once this is complete a second public meeting will be held and this design will be shared with the community
at this point the community will be able to give feedback on the draft plan
