Healthy and Protected Harbour

Strategic Priority - A healthy and protected harbour and catchment: kitesurfer.

Our strategic priority is a healthy and protected harbour and catchment.

This means we want a harbour that is the centre-piece of the community culturally, recreationally and environmentally, and is:

  • a clean and natural habitat
  • a safe and beautiful recreational environment
  • supported by a robust ecological restoration programme
  • treasured by the community, businesses and visitors
  • supported by infrastructure that minimises adverse impacts to the harbour and catchment

Performance indicators

The performance indicators for this priority are:

  • Reduce sedimentation rate as measured by bathymetric survey every 5 years
  • Improve cockle numbers in the Pauatahanui Inlet
