About the report

As part of the review of the District Plan the Council considered the erosion hazard protection lines, and rules relating to them, in the light of investigations by the Waikato Regional Council in 2002. (The lines in the operative District Plan are based on investigations in the early 1990s.)
The Council engaged J. Dahm (Eco Nomas Ltd) in March 2010 to review and update the 2002 work.

The conclusions of his report have been included in the Appeals Version of the Proposed District Plan, with the Primary and Secondary Development setback lines being shown on the Planning Map for Whiritoa (Map E) and forming the basis for the rules in section 8.2.3 Erosion Protection Setback lines (Whiritoa Beach) in the District Plan text.
