Paihia Waterfront Redevelopment Project – Technical and operational updates

Far North Holdings provides an update every two weeks for the Paihia community on technical and operational aspects of the Paihia Waterfront Redevelopment Project.

Wave and hydrodynamic modelling

We expect to be able to post to our website soon the two-page summary we have asked for from Beca that explains in layman’s terms what its wave and hydrodynamic modelling report shows (see ‘Projects / Paihia Waterfront Redevelopment / Coast and water studies’ on our website). It will go up on our website as soon as it arrives.

Detailed design – marine structures

Detailed design work continues and all plans are due for completion shortly.

We are still in the process of finalising the dredging plan for the Paihia Wharf approach route outlined at the Waterfront Development Steering Group’s public meeting on 22 March.

We expect the marine archaeology report to be delivered shortly. As outlined in our update of two weeks ago, this will be presented to hapū and then posted on our website – in that order.

We still expect to be able to release tenders for the project by May. At this stage we aim to start work during winter this year.

Design – waterfront re-development

If you live in Paihia, or if you have an interest in what happens in the town, please get involved in the design of the waterfront re-development.

The Paihia Waterfront Development Steering Group is the community-led organisation that is promoting and co-ordinating community input to the design process.

Please get involved! Download the design templates from our website (Projects / Paihia Waterfront Redevelopment / Community design input) and submit your fabulous ideas for consideration by Thursday 15 April. Details of how to submit your input are included with the design templates. Let the Steering Group know what YOU need and want the re-developed Paihia waterfront to look like.
