Marine Parade Redevelopment Changes

Napier residents and ratepayers have another chance to provide feedback to the Napier City Council about the Marine Parade redevelopment.

The city development committee meeting councillors voted unanimously to include an extra $1.3 million in the 2016/17 Annual Plan on top of the $5.7m already budgeted for, to cover any possible increase in costs which has come to light now that the detailed design is complete.

A price increase was to be expected. Don't cut costs, make it great. Something for the teenagers this time

No use having these new attractions if there is not enough parking. As it is, Napier has very little parking, especially if families having a day out with little ones. Also a decent sized toilet block which needs to be 'manned' during the day especially covering Public / School Holidays.

I agree also, the project must be completed as planned. To cut back would leave our city with something half baked and that has been done too often and requiring further investment later. Get it done and create a wonderful asset for our city!

Yes go ahead this project needs to be finished off properly to a high standard. Not happy about yet another cost blow out but at least with this one the people of Napier and visitors alike will use the finished product..(unlike the deco buses and mtg)

Fully support additional expenditure to ensure this development is best in show. The cost rises are in my belief justified and clearly articulated by the NCC - any measures to cut corners / downscale would only negatively impact and as a result additional investment would be required. Council should proceed as proposed and ensure in future contingency is written into multi year projects like this

Absolutely no problem the Marine Parade is to the tourist possibly our most important feature of the City area. The money is minor and thanks that it was decided to increase the amount from the 2013 estimates and not cut back on the development. It is so thrilling that the city is again on a roll after the amalgamation issue dead & buried. I feel so proud of our city.

More Information

The budget increase will be funded by an internal loan and will not affect rates in a major way, as debt servicing is incorporated into annual rates as a matter of course. The loan and interest payments in this instance are expected to total $87,670 per annum, which equates to 0.2 percent of rates, less than $2 per average residential ratepayer.

A review of the project found estimated costs had risen since the last estimates were done in 2013, particularly in construction. The review resulted in some alterations being made to the overall design, but also warned against any further cost cutting as it would decrease the size and scope of what was originally proposed and set out in the Long Term Plan Amendment 2012.

Residents and ratepayers will be able to give feedback on the changes to the project via Talk to Us from today until 1st April.

The feedback will be analysed and reported on at the 6 April full Council meeting.

The next stage of Marine Parade’s redevelopment includes a world-class skating facility and multi-purpose area incorporating the former Marineland grandstand, which will include public toilets. It will also include sculptures, an interactive water park, furniture and landscaped areas, inspired by Maori mythology and the local environment.

Tenders will be called shortly for the next stage.
