DPA welcomes the Christchurch City Council’s proposal to replace the ageing Akaroa Wharf with what will hopefully be a more inclusive, accessible and safer wharf. DPA has a number of recommendations around the accessibility of the wharf including: the availability of wheelchair and mobility aid user-friendly hoists for access to boat trips; the use of tactile strips; accessible entrances to all commercial sites; strategically placed seating and sufficient mobility car parking spaces.
