Consultation for this project has now closed.

About this project

Every day people use Auckland’s navigable waters for both recreation and business, for example boating, kayaking, kite boarding, swimming, fishing, and ferrying people and cargo.

The number of people and variety of uses of Auckland’s navigable waters can increase the risk of accidents, nuisance and damage. For example, jet skis used in swimming areas, illegally moored vessels and explosive cargo.
