What is this plan all about?
This plan is based on recommendations from the community panel - dedicated volunteers from the Wharekawa community who came together, with the relevant councils, to understand what natural hazards mean for the Wharekawa area, now and in the future.
The plan provides a pathway for how councils and the communities will work together to ensure a safe and resilient future for communities living on the Wharekawa Coast.
This Community Plan commits to future actions by the councils. It identifies who is responsible for undertaking the actions, when they will be done and how success will be measured.
What happens next?
After the consultation period closes on Friday 27 October, all feedback will be compiled by staff and presented to the Joint Working Party.
- Staff will identify where changes to the Community Plan might be needed in response to the feedback.
- The Joint Working Party will consider feedback and proposed changes and will be asked to recommend a final Community Plan for adoption – November 2023.
- The Joint Working Party’s recommendations and the final Community Plan will then be presented for adoption to all three Councils – November/December 2023.
