People interested in the future use of an area of land at Marine Park, are being asked for their thoughts and invited to attend two community drop-in sessions at Sulphur Point.
The two drop-in sessions with Tauranga City Council and University of Waikato staff will be held this Saturday from 11am to 1pm and on Tuesday, 27 November from 5.30pm to 6.30pm at the Tauranga Fish and Dive Club, 60 Cross Road, Sulphur Point.
People can learn more about the proposal from Council staff. Staff from the University of Waikato will be onsite to answer questions about the potential facility.
Tauranga City Council is seeking feedback on the proposal to revoke recreation reserve status from an area of land at Marine Park, to enable the University of Waikato to establish a new marine research and educational facility.
This is to enable a potential long-term lease of the land to the University of Waikato in order to establish a new marine research and educational facility.
The feasible site has been identified through an assessment that took current and future activities into account, says Tauranga City Council.
People can go online at www.tauranga.govt.nz to learn more about the proposal and submit written feedback. Submissions close at 5pm on Friday, 14 December 2018.
