Management plans

We’ve prepared comprehensive and best practice management plans to manage any potential adverse effects from planned construction and dredging.

These plans build on the technical studies we commissioned pre-consent and include:

  • Marine Wildlife Management Plan to ensure we avoid, mitigate or remedy the potential for adverse effects on marine mammals.
  • Avian Management Plan to ensure we protect birdlife, such as the kororā or little blue penguin that nests on-port.
  • Dredging and Disposal Management Plan that outlines our dredging programme and how we will avoid or mitigate against adverse effects and monitor compliance with the consents.
  • Water Quality Management Plan to address how we will manage the impacts of dredging on water quality.
  • Biosecurity Management Plan that identifies how we will avoid the incursion of unwanted organisms in the marine environment.
  • Marine Cultural Health Programme Development Plan prepared in consultation with the Mana Whenua Steering Komiti. The development plan outlines how Napier Port and the Komiti will establish a detailed marine cultural health implementation plan to ensure the cultural health of the marine environment,  in particular Pānia Reef, is surveyed, monitored and reported upon.
  • Traffic Management Plan to outline how the additional traffic generated by the development of the new wharf at Napier Port, will be managed.
  • Construction Noise Management Plan to outline how we will manage land-based construction noise as well underwater noise.

Consent application and decision

Resource Consent Application

Resource Consent Application

We lodged resource consent applications in December 2017 after years of research, consultation and detailed investigations.

Resource Consent Decision

Resource Consent Decision

A decision was reached in November 2018 by three independent commissioners to approve the six resource consents.
