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.

When you can have your say
You can have your say from 30 March to 15 July 2021.
What happens next

- The process will then be repeated for other parts of Auckland.
