The brief for this project was to provide empirical data about the use of Tauranga City Council boat ramps and associated parking areas at Sulphur Point and Mount Maunganui to support decision making about the future of these assets. The study was undertaken at three locations in early 2019, and involved vehicle and trailer counts in six separate use zones, and park user counts at Marine Park. Counts and observations were supplemented with drone aerial photography to provide further evidence of how the areas are used, particularly at peak times.
