One idea that’s been floated is a marina at Breakwater Bay, on the western side of the city. Similar developments near ports like Picton, Nelson, Napier and Whangarei have generated new leisure and shopping precincts, creating revenue that might help offset rates in the long run.
The sea has given us prosperity and a place to spend our recreation time; could a marina build on that?
