Rejuvenation proposed for harbour entrance
September 20th, 2012
[by David Armstrong]
Keep Motueka Beautiful is looking into the possibility of a tidy-up and landscaping of the run-down area east (seaward) of the Talley's public fishing platform at Port Motueka.
Following complaints from two sources that the area, used as a car park and staging post for engineering remediation work on Jacketts Island, is looking neglected and a real mess, KMB has decided to investigate whether and how this could be radically improved.
First they will find out who owns the land, and then they will consult with Tasman District Council about tidying and landscaping the area. It is expected that nothing much can be done while the Jacketts Island work is carried out, planning could proceed to prepare for beautification work after that.
KMB will ask the Motueka Community Board to facilitate the preparation of a landsdcape plan, and see if money could be obtained from the port's Endowment Fund.

Well done KMB if you can get this done. It's a real mess after use, regarding the groyne. A lot of people visit this area. At the moment it's drive through the puddles. The old cool store was there many years ago.
