With all the change and development, where will I park?
Like most inner city zones the world over, car parking space is under pressure. In many respects, we are fortunate, as a marina in a CBD location, to have as much space as we do.
With the implementation of the Westhaven Plan, you want to know that you will be able to park within a reasonable distance of your boat. The Marina has tools - including yellow zones, permits, and time limits on white zones, to make sure that berth holders and their crew have priority access to the available space. Thanks to improved parking systems, in general we believe that access to Marina parking, is better now than it was several years ago. The next stage in carpark management may be a number plate recognition system, which will let you specify access for cars that are relevant to your boat.
We’ll keep you updated as time goes on, and we recommend that whenever you need a park for family or friends, contact the Marina Office and ask for a temporary parking permit. They are happily given.
If the public are using the marina more, will my boat be secure?
Westhaven has its own security guards patrolling the marina 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While the Promenade will bring more visitors to the Marina, Pier security and access by PIN code or swipe card, will be as robust as it currently is. The public won’t have pier access and we don’t anticipate that your boat’s security will be affected by the Promenade construction.
