Planning for the future of our shoreline

We're preparing shoreline adaptation plans across the region, in partnership with mana whenua and local communities.

What shoreline adaptation plans are

Shoreline adaptation plans look at how we can adapt Auckland Council-owned land and assets to respond to coastal hazards and climate change over the next 100 years.

Recognising the environmental and landscape value of the shoreline, these plans also work to promote the preservation and restoration of the coastal environment for future generations.

How we develop strategies for shoreline adaptation plans

To help us develop strategies to manage these areas, we use:

  • coastal hazard data
  • climate change forecasts
  • values from mana whenua
  • input from infrastructure providers
  • input from the local community

Through this process, we aim to identify and document the best options for managing our coastal areas over the next century.

What we want your feedback on

To help us identify key areas of importance to the community, we want your thoughts on:

1) Auckland's southern coastal areas, stretching from Pahurehure Inlet in the east and Te Toro and Waipipi in the West including Waiuku and Karaka (see Manukau South map below).

2) Auckland's south western coastline, stretching from Karioitahi in the south, up to Wattle Bay, across to Big Bay and Grahams Beach (see Āwhitu map below).

We want to know what you do along the coastline and what you value about these coastal areas.

How you can have your say:

  • Add your comments and feedback on our interactive map on Social Pinpoint
  • Come along to one of our online or in person community events -- Meet the team and find out more about how you can get involved at our upcoming community event on the 20th August at the Glenbrook Beach Hall, located on McLarin Road, Glenbrook 2681 (10am-1pm)!
  • Email the team at shorelineadaptationplans@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

When you can have your say

You can have your say on both of these plans from 14 July, 2022 to 14 October, 2022.
