    About the Next Generation project

    Post  Admin on Thu Mar 18, 2010 9:03 am

    Port Otago has reached a critical point in its development -- development that will cement Port Chalmers as a key part of New Zealand's international supply chain.

    To prepare Port Chalmers for the next 30 years, Port Otago has over the past 2 years been exploring the issues and options associated with securing visits by bigger ships. A project team of local and national specialists in science, engineering and logistics has now completed the assessment work, and a draft resource consent application has been prepared.

    This project comprises three major elements:
    # to deepen and widen the harbour channel to Port Chalmers;
    # to dispose of dredging spoil at sea; and
    # to extend the wharves and berths at Port Chalmers.

    Port Otago is in the process of completing final pre-consultation with the community.

    A further meeting of the Project Consultative Group will be held on the 18th of March.

    Final completion of the documentation will be through March and April with a final consent lodged as soon as possible.
