Ports of Auckland wants to erect a memorial to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Rainbow Warrior bombing.
It said it was important to commemorate such a significant event in Auckland and the Port's history.
The proposed memorial will be on Quay Street opposite Marsden wharf where the Rainbow Warrior was bombed.
It consists of a seat facing north and incorporates the bollard the Warrior's bow line was moored to when she was sunk.
On the gate a steel sheet describes the bombing.
Marsden Wharf is being removed as part of Ports re-development.
