Consultation has concluded

UPDATE 210922

Interim update on Glenbrook seawall project – Sept 2022


Your feedback is being used to shape the Glenbrook seawall project.

Since the consultation, replenishment sand has been identified. A final choice will be made as part of the design process, but it will suit the area’s coastal processes and have a similar look and feel to what is at Glenbrook already.

An issue during consultation was the southern groyne site and the ski access lane, which can’t safely occupy the same part of the beach.

Off the end of Fleet Street, the best groyne site works for the coastal dynamics and storm-water outlet, but clashes with the ski lane. A proposal to move the lane south, close to the Beach Road pedestrian ramp, will go to the Harbourmaster for decision before any bylaw amendment.

And despite the issues being outside the seawall project scope, Auckland Transport has also been made aware of feedback around water ponding, parking and turning vehicles.

Although any final design is still being investigated ahead of being submitted to Franklin Local Board for confirmation, work to obtain resource consent will be undertaken in the coming months.

After that a contractor can be appointed and updates will be prepared around the timing and impacts of construction.




What we are proposing

A section of shoreline along Glenbrook Beach is in poor condition and at risk of inundation with the projected rise in sea levels.

The site is a highly valued and well-used amenity for public access and recreation.


What we want your feedback on

We want your feedback on options for the Glenbrook Beach coastal erosion response, including replacing the existing seawall.

Please refer to the short video for more details on the proposed options.

We will also host an online community information session and Q & A on Monday 21 March at 7pm. (more details and link to the meeting coming shortly)
