Coromandel Harbor Project Enters Next Phase

A draft Business Case for the development of the Coromandel Harbor Facilities has been completed, according to the Thames-Coromandel District Council.

The draft will be reviewed by an internal review team before being presented to the Coromandel Harbor Stakeholders Working Group and Council’s Economic Development Committee after which it will be presented to the Council.

The presentation of the business case to Council is another milestone and decisional point for this major and complex project,” says Greg Hampton, Coromandel Harbor Project managerThe business case will inform Councils thinking on the scale, investment requirements and timeframes to enable the achievement of improved harbor infrastructure to satisfy future needs,” says Mr Hampton

The draft Business Case focuses on the possibility of a half-meter dredging of Furey’s Creek for charter boats and recreational boaties, and a dredged basin concept in the Coromandel inner Harbor.

It also looks at building specific relationships with Regional and Central Government stakeholders to examine key issues such as harbor contamination, infrastructure upgrades and consenting processes.

Alongside the draft Business Case, the Council has already approved commencing work on the expansion of the Sugarloaf Wharf at Te Kouma, which is currently used by both the Aquaculture industry and recreational boating groups.
