The Applications


Napier Port has now lodged applications to Hawke’s Bay Regional Council (HBRC) for its proposed wharf and dredging project. 

The applications, which are subject to the Resource Management Act, are to construct a new wharf to meet the port’s growing need for wharf space, and to do more dredging to make the shipping channel safe for larger vessels coming here in future.

Napier Port is committed to ensuring the proposed wharf and dredging project can be carried out in a way that respects the environment and the values of the community the port and its operations are associated with.

To achieve that, Napier Port has invested significant time and resource into gathering all the information it needs, including direct engagement with more than 2000 members of the community and commissioning local and international experts to complete 17 technical reports.

The applications and the technical reports that support them are described below.
