Stage 2 of the District Plan Review is currently in progress. This stage includes the review of issues relating to natural hazard risk and climate change. The review investigates how natural hazards and the effects of climate change may affect land use and development across the district and considers options for managing these effects.
We are currently gathering technical information including river flood modelling, a mine subsidence risk assessment and a coastal inundation and erosion risk assessment. Once this work is completed we will be holding a series of public open days (see our consultation button) to allow affected land owners, communities and key stakeholders the opportunity to view this information and to provide feedback on both the technical information and possible options for the management of these areas before Stage 2 is notified.
