Public engagement for the Whangaparāoa Pilot closed in July 2021.


The Whangaparāoa Pilot was endorsed by the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board in February 2022 and approved by Environment and Climate Change Committee in March 2022. It is available for download here.


Our coastline is changing and we play a key role in sustainably managing it

We are working in partnership with mana whenua and local communities to prepare shoreline adaptation plans across the region, beginning with a pilot plan in Whangaparāoa.

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

  • coastal hazard data
  • climate change forecasts
  • social data
  • input from the local community

Through this process, we aim to document our intended approach to managing Auckland Council-owned land and assets near the coast over the next century.

We are holding a series of public engagement events to explain how we develop these plans and how local communities can have their voices heard.

What we want your feedback on

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

We would like to know what you do with these areas and what you value about them.

How you can get involved

  • Public engagement for the Whangaparāoa Pilot has now closed.
  • The public presentations remain available on YouTube. Click here to access the recordings.
