Mooring and Marinas Strategy (Northland Regional Council)

Growing pressure on limited mooring and marina space around Northland’s coast – especially in the Bay of Islands – prompted the Northland Regional Council to develop a Mooring and Marinas Strategy. This was developed over 18 months after consultation with a variety of key stakeholders including local residents, boating clubs, tangata whenua, commercial and environmental interests, other local authorities, contractors and marina developers.
