Photographer's Note

Boat sheds at the end of the Hutt River where it enters Port Nicholson Harbour. Still used by commercial and recreational fishermen on a daily basis.
No la-di-da fancy restaurants here.

This from the Reginal Council.

"Policy 6.2.11 of the Regional Coastal Plan

To prevent the use of boat sheds for residential habitation and for activities which are not associated with the coastal marine area.

Explanation. The residential use and other commercial activities such as offices, restaurants, etc., of boat sheds in the Porirua and Pauatahanui Inlet areas of Porirua Harbour, and at Titahi Bay (and Hutt River Estuary?) has been a source of concern over a number of years. Boat sheds are a limited coastal resource and their continued use for water related activities is a sustainable use of this limited resource. Non-water related activities may have significant adverse environmental effects and create demands for carparking, water supply and waste disposal, and also raise other issues such as noise and loss of amenity and character. Accordingly, residential and non-water related activities are considered inappropriate uses of boat sheds."
