Opotiki Harbour project underway

A total of one million dollars will be spent on preparing for the development of the Opotiki Harbour project.

Once complete the project will have the potential to completely transform the socioeconomic status of the entire Eastern Bay.

Chief Executive for the Opotiki District Council Aileen Lawrie says works have already begun in finding a potential rock source.

The funds will cover the cost of a range of tasks including the investigation of potential rock source, harbour re-design and costing and the continued commercial case for the harbour.
