Contractors for the Westland District Council's property
company have begun making repairs to the piles and
cross-beams of the Jackson Bay wharf.
Westland District Property Ltd chairman Durham Havill says
the full upgrade of the wharf is expected to take five years.
A management committee of local fishermen has been appointed
for a two-year period to advise the property company. Plans
for a new concrete boat ramp have also been completed.
