Sports, recreation and celebratory events on the marine foreshore or rivers may require exclusion zones so the event can be managed safely for everyone involved (see below for explanation). Event organisers can apply to the Harbourmaster for exclusion zones under the Navigation Safety Bylaw 2018 to set 'no-go' areas for other activities or lift speed restrictions (eg jet boat events). A Harbourmaster Notice in Hawke's Bay Today or relevant local newspaper will formally notify the zone.
If you have an event that is on the marine foreshore or river please apply using the online form below.
