URGENT! Shoreline Adaptation Plans – what does it mean for Piha/Karekare??

Posted by SCe Comments Off on URGENT! Shoreline Adaptation Plans – what does it mean for Piha/Karekare??
The Waitakere Ranges Local Board was unhappy about the consultation on the Shoreline Adaptation Plans (SAPs) or the Manukau North Coast and the Whatipu to South Head of Kaipara – West (Tasman) Coast – and has required the Council to go out again to consult with our coastal communtities.
It was not originally intended to consult with the actual recommendations as to how Council will respond to sea level rise but this is now happening. This plan will determine how Council responds to coastal threats for the next 100 years, so it is very important.
The links below will take you to the actual recommendations and we want the community to feed back on this. Although the Plans are for Council land only, this affects roads, carparks and other public assets which sometimes actually give us access to where we live, to surf clubs, halls and shops, so it is important that we know what the communities think. Please have a good look and give us feedback at an event or submission.
You can use the link in the last para of this post to see what the SAP for your community is saying\.
The Shoreline Adaptation Plan team at Auckland Council has said the following:
“Using what we have heard from local communities, iwi, asset owners and infrastructure providers, DRAFT plans for Manukau North and Whatipu to South Head have now been developed, however we are increasingly aware that the severe weather in early 2023 may have affected people’s ability to take part in the initial engagement for these plans.
To help ensure everyone can have their say, between 12 July and 12 August you’ll be able to read the full DRAFT plan(s), give feedback and let us know if there’s anything you think we may have missed.
To support this further round of community engagement the Shoreline Adaptation Team will also be hosting a range of drop-in sessions and webinars:
· Monday 15 July, 11am – 1pm, Drop in session at the New Lynn War Memorial Library
· Tuesday 16 July, 11am – 1pm, Drop in session Glen Eden Library
