So Whats the Plan?
Stage One is now complete with several Companies owning land surrounding the precinct, and many there companies moving in to lease land or just to provide resources and labour in the precinct.
We want to grow the Bays maritime industry…
But what does that mean for everyone else?
With Phase one done and dusted, the precinct is now open for business!
With Vessels of all shapes and sizes coming from far and wide for work to be completed on them, the Hub is starting to hum with Local Contractors, business’s and Company’s coming together to provide the Bays “one stop Shop” for all your maritime needs!
A new vertical seawall has been constructed along the water/land interface. This seawall has been designed to allow for alongside berthage for vessels of all sizes upto 60m . These berths will also provide the opportunity for truck and forklift access to vessels for loading, unloading and in-water maintenance activities.
Wash down area:
A wash down area is included at the eastern side of the precinct. All runoff is captured and treated prior to be being recycled or discharged in a professional manner. Tauranga is home to the largest maritime water treatment facility in the country.
We have approximately 6,300sqm of hardstand area where vessels can be stored while completing maintenance. The hardstand area will be developed to provide a surface able to cater for the largest of loads expected from those vessels stored within the precinct.
Accessways through the hardstand will allow vessels to be delivered to the various tenancies backing onto the precinct. Vessels can be either stored on the hardstand adjacent the various tenancies or can be placed into the tenancies’ purpose-built building.
Tauranga City Council recognises the needs of the local fishing fleet. The precinct has been developed to provide facilities for loading of ice and unloading of fresh fish. The precinct will also provide dedicated areas to allow truck access to the water’s edge to allow servicing of fishing vessels of all sizes.
A number of vessel berths are available adjacent to the precinct which will be supplemented with additional berths. Later stages will consider adjustments to existing berths to optimise the use of the water space attached to the precinct which is large enough to provide long term opportunities for on-water berthing.
Council proposes to integrate a refuelling facility that is accessible 24/7 and available to all vessels. Such a facility is likely to be located adjacent or as part ofthe fishing loading/unloading zone to the south of the property.
Car parking for berth users, contractors and those using the hard stand will be provided to the south of the propert accessible via Den Place.
There is secure and restricted access to the hardstand area, berths and wharves as these are marine industrial areas where commercial activities will be undertaken, these are isolated from access by the general public.
