The first business at Sulphur Point's new marine park could be open this week.
Four commercial sites were created on a council-owned plot of land on Keith Allen Drive- the rest of the land was used for a trailer boat storage yard.
Marine Diesel Services yesterday moved their Cross Rd building to the new marine park and office manager Bryce Cowie said he hoped it would be open by the end of the week.
"We've moved because the port want their land back for expansion.
"The new site is on council land and we've managed to lease that for a long period so we moved the building.
"It was a better option for us cost-wise to move the building than to build a new one."
Council property manager Anthony Averill said of the four sites, one had been leased, two were close to signing and one was still vacant.
He said the total cost to the council to set up the park had been under $15,000.
"All the businesses are from the marine industry, established businesses who are looking to relocate.
"We don't have a time frame to have it all done by, it's just an opportunity for more people to go down there.
