Council buys $1.28mil port site


Nelson City Council has confirmed its purchase of a $1.28mil property in Port Nelson.

The Totally Boating property is adjacent to Council land and is currently used for boat storage, however, the council will now incorporate it into the Marina Strategy.

Earlier this year council identified a need to increase space available within the marina to cater for a range of activities including training, changing facilities and storage of equipment.

Council hopes that acquiring the Totally Boating site will provide the extra space needed, and increase the flexibility of the area for future Marina development.
