We worked with Boffa Miskell, one of New Zealand’s best-recognised landscape architecture consultancies, to undestand the visual impact of the proposed wharf development. You can read the full report here.
The study showed that the development will have minimal additional impact and limited visibility, with the ‘visual catchment’ being relatively small. It will be visible from:
- Breakwater Road, Hardinge Road and north-facing properties of Bluff Hill (Seapoint, Kowhai and Bayview)
- Bluff Hill Domain
- The foreshore through to Perfume Point
- The inner waters adjacent to Napier Port
The report recognises that Napier Port is long established landmark that already forms part of the view and in itself is a source of activity and interest.
