Living with the Changing Tides

UPDATE 12 SEPTEMBER 2017: Adoption of the Policy:

Council has adopted a Coastal Erosion Responses Policy to enable consistent decision-making where Council-owned coastal land is affected by coastal erosion or subsidence.

To find out more, check out Council's website and the Decision Story



The Draft Inner Harbour and Coastal Erosion Management Policy 2017 was out for consultation with the community from February to March 2017, and again in April following the Omokoroa slips.

We're currently reviewing all the feedback and will present this to Elected Members in June-July 2017. They'll then make decisions and we'll update the site with the results.

About the policy

This draft policy, if adopted, will become a 30-year policy detailing how we respond as a District to coastal and harbour erosion. You can view the draft on this site.

The draft is based on feedback received through our online forums in 2016, extensive research on the effects of erosion on our coastlines and inner harbour, and discussions with affected property owners, Iwi and Hapu.
