Eastland Port Plans Include Dredging

Eastland Port plans to make its first application in July for resource consent to rebuild wharf 6, strengthen a portion of the river training wall, and reshape the slipway. 

The second application, set for the next year, will be to extend wharf 8, required reclamation, breakwater repairs and dredging, according to their latest announcement.

A number of Eastland Port structures involved in the redevelopment require refurbishment regardless of the second berth development.

“The port is a regionally significant transport asset for this district and so to do nothing is not an option,” said General Manager, Andrew Gaddum.

“We need to make capital improvements to ensure the port continues to provide the services we all need now and into the future.”

Eastland Port is part of regional infrastructure company Eastland Group which is 100 percent owned by Eastland Community Trust (ECT).

Eastland Group Chief Executive, Matt Todd, added that Eastland Port generates about 50% of Eastland Group’s earnings and therefore is a substantial contributor to the annual distributions paid by Eastland Group to ECT.
