The application seeks resource consents for a proposed wharf facility in the coastal marine area of the Mangawhai Estuary at the end of Moir Street, Mangawhai.

The proposed wharf facility will consist of a piled timber wharf structure that will extend 101 metres (m) into the coastal marine area. An elevated 3 m wide walkway, 90 m in length, leads to the head of the wharf, which will have dimensions of 10.9 m long and 12 m wide. A building with dimensions of 7 m by 6 m by 3.1 m high at its apex is proposed to be constructed on the wharf head. A gangway 14 m long will extend from the head of the wharf to a 12 m by 4 m floating concrete pontoon secured in position by 4 piles. The proposed wharf facility is to reinstate the historic Mangawhai Wharf that was built in the 1880s and demolished in the 1950s.
