Other Coastlines - Bream Bay
Written by Denise Piper, Whangarei Leader

A massive development of up to 2000 houses and 5500 jobs could rejuvenate the partly disused end of Port Rd.

The Port Nikau Joint Venture has applied to the Whangarei District Council for a private plan change for the 101 hectare site, including the old port in Whangarei.

It plans to change the land’s zoning from heavy industrial business 4 to mixed use – allowing houses and apartments, retail and other commercial, open space and industrial.

Last week the council gave the first thumbs-up to the development, allowing it to go through formal submissions and the hearing process.

The proposed development will be done over a considerable time period – up to 25 years.

A highlight of the development is a high amenity use of the water’s edge, including cafes, tourist facilities, open space and marine activities.

When fully developed it will have enough businesses to employ 5500 people – a fifth of the employment growth predicted in Whangarei in the next 25 years.

It will also house up to 4600 people in a range of housing types.
