Options for future of Hobsonville Marina
Panuku (Auckland Council Organisation) is exploring options for the future of Hobsonville Marina.
Auckland Council owns the land at Hobsonville Marina (4.8 hectares), which is subject to 10 long-term ground leases to the current marina operator, Hobsonville Marina Limited (HML).
Of those 10 leases, eight terminate in 67 years and two are perpetually renewable which means there is no limit to the number of times that the leases can be renewed.
The marina operations include berths for vessels, hard-stand and haul-out facilities, berth holder parking and retail and industrial units.
On behalf of the council, Panuku Development Auckland – the city’s redevelopment agency – has discussed future options for the Marina with the current lessee, HML.
They want your views on opportunities being considered that include:
- the potential sale of parts of the Marina to enable the development of new homes;
- improving public access and amenities including the construction of a boardwalk on the waterfront;
- improving public transport such as the ferry park and ride; and
- safeguarding marina uses such as berth holder parking and the hard stand.
