In 2019, Waikato District Council and the Raglan Community Board received funding from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) for the redevelopment of the Whaaingaroa wharf and wider harbour.
This funding has been allocated to three exciting projects, to transform the wharf and wider harbour now and in the future. These include:
Further funding has also been received from the Government’s Better Off Fund for a fourth project:
New seawall taking shape as part of western wharf improvements
In late-August, construction kicked off on the much-anticipated western walkway improvements. This project includes tidal stairs and a kayak ramp, as well as new seating areas, cultural artworks and planting.
The team have started by building up a new rock seawall, to form the base of the walkway. A number of key elements, such as the tidal stairs, will then be constructed off-site delivered by truck, and lifted into place with a crane.
Work is expected to take up to six months, and wrap up in early 2024.
