This is progressing as a project separate to the PGF funding. The wharf project we will be concerned with urgent work should it be identified.

NZHPT say that in the event of ground disturbance HNZPT considers that professional archaeological advice from a local archaeologist/s needs to be sought prior to the development of these projects. Is the ground to be disturbed by these developments and, if so, what advice has been given?
