What is the business case for?

Tasman District Council are preparing a business case regarding the upgrade of its community asset - Port Tarakohe. This project is partially funded by the Provincial Growth Fund.

A business case means agreeing on and costing out the work to provide for current and future needs. To be clear, a business case is not an approval process, it is a costing and design exercise to help inform future decision making about further investment in this community asset.

Why prepare a business case for Port Tarakohe?

“The Port is a highly valued community asset. We need to acknowledge its past history and current use, all while ensuring it’s going to be around for future generations.” 

Deputy Mayor Tim King

Port Tarakohe is a community asset that provides for both recreational and commercial opportunities.

The Port plays a pivotal role in providing recreational and commercial access to the wider Tasman, it provides sheltered boat launching, it is the home to ‘learn to sail’ operations and cultural waka ama experiences along with recreational fishing off the existing breakwater.

A business case for Port Tarakohe needs to:

  • ensure social and economic resilience,
  • comply with regulations eg: Health & Safety / Food Safety / Water Standards / Environmental,
  • meet operational needs for current and future recreational & commercial users,
  • account for climate change, and
  • to retain and protect this community asset for future generations.
