Our coastline is changing and we play a key role in sustainably managing the coast.

We are working in partnership with mana whenua and local communities to prepare coastal management 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 the coastline over the next century.

We will also be holding a series of public presentations to explain how we will 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

*Please note the Whangaparaoa pilot has been postponed to late March - early April.

  • Come along to public presentations at the Hibiscus Coast Community RSA (March-April, dates to be confirmed)
  • Pop in and have a chat with our experts at a public open day at the Whangaparāoa Library (May and June, dates to be confirmed)
  • Join the conversation online. Tell us about your experiences living, working and playing on the Whangaparāoa coast using our interactive engagement tool.
  • Join the live stream of our public presentations or watch a recording of the public presentations at a later time.
