Waitara Marine Park concept design

Status: Closed.

Feedback closed: 5pm on 17 November 2021.

Marine Park is a much-loved coastal area where people have come together, fished and experienced the coast and river for generations. NPDC and Te Kōwhatu tū Moana Trust have been talking with Waitara residents and hapū about an updated design of Marine Park that will freshen it up and enhance the park for locals and visitors.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this stage!
