Safety changes: Napier Port boat ramp and four car parks closing
Napier Port welcomes community use of the port beach. But we’re a busy place – and growing.
We take our duty of care to protect the health and safety of everyone on port land seriously. This means we’re making some changes to reduce traffic hazards and enhance safety in the area. These changes will take effect from Saturday 30 November 2019.
- Car parks closing for fenced picnic area
We are closing four port-owned car parks near the beach and turning this space into a fenced picnic area for community enjoyment, which will be accessible by foot only. There are plenty of public car parks available for use on Breakwater Road.
- Port boat ramp closing to improve public safety
We are permanently closing the port-owned boat ramp from 30 November 2019. Traffic volumes and hazards are increasing as we grow. They will increase further at the end of this year when we establish a construction site nearby so we can build a new wharf to support regional growth. Alternative boat ramps in Hawke’s Bay are available as marked in the attached flyer.
Thank you for your cooperation with these changes
We are committed to keeping everyone safe while on-port and thank you for your cooperation with these changes. If you have any questions or feedback please get in touch with our team: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 06 833 4440.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
