This 'Harbour City' of ours requires jetties at Boat Ramps.

Petition details

For a Harbour City, there is a distinct lack of boat ramps with Jetties. All boat ramps (official and 'non' official) on Wellington's south coast have no jetties and are not only inconvenient, but downright dangerous to use.

Background information

The boat ramp at Ohiro Bay was upgraded a few years ago, but no jetty. None either at Island Bay (unofficial ramp, I think), Lyall Bay or Moa Point. In Wgtn City (excluding Seaview / Eastborne), there is one public boat ramp with a Jetty - Evans Bay. Smaller communities around New Zealand have better facilities than this proud capital of ours. (Gisborne for example have world class boat launching facilities)
