I/we oppose the application by Waiheke Marinas Limited to construct and operate a 160 berth marina and associated facilities, including reclamation for a carpark area, at Matiatia, Waiheke Island.

The specific parts of the application to which my/our submission relates are:

(Please tick those that apply)

  The construction of the marina facility and 55 space parking area.
  Occupation of a common (public) marine and coastal area.
  Construction of the marina in an area which is wahi tapu to Maori.
  Restrictions on public access and exclusive occupation rights.
  Construction of rock breakwaters (6000m² footprint, requiring 28,000m³ rock fill).
  The reclamation of 3020 m² in the coastal marine area to create the carpark.
  Dredging of 5025m³ of sea bottom material in the marine area.
  Construction and operation of infrastructure services(e.g. water, electricity, stormwater and wastewater)
  Marine related (ferries and wharves etc.) public transport issues for wider community in the marina construction process and in the future.
  Car parking provided by marina is inadequate to suit marina needs.
  Community traffic and parking issues at Matiatia in the construction process.
  Community traffic and parking at Matiatia and other possible long term effects of the marina.
  Ecological damage from the construction process over the short and long term, and threat to species e.g. little blue penguins nest within metres of the marina site.
  Number of boats in a concentrated area could have adverse effects on water quality, sediments and biota (living things) within and beyond the marina.
  Degrading and changing the character (aesthetically, ecologically or recreationally) of Matiatia Bay, our gateway to the island.


I/we are concerned with these matters as indicated above and with the effects that may result as a consequence thereof.

I/We wish to speak in support of our submission.

If others make a similar submission we will consider presenting a joint case at the hearing.
