Arising from the Marina Masterplan, the promenade will be a 5 metre wide pathway, providing a safe space for all users, be it by bike, walking, pushchairs, mobility scooters or wheelchairs.

The design has developed following discussions with the Nelson Marlborough Health Board and the Disabled Persons Assembly to ensure equitable access.

Following the construction, the area will be landscaped, with lighting a key element to make sure it is safe and visible.

The project will be split into two stages, a Southern Zone and a Central Zone. This will minimise the disruption to users and businesses in the area.
