Coastal assets and climate change
The effects of climate change are increasingly being felt in storm damage to coastal assets and more frequent landslips across the region.
We are implementing a programme to review all of our coastal assets and develop an asset management plan which will enable us to prioritise funding for the renewal of these assets.
What will be done and how much it will cost
The amount of $1 million is provided in the first two years of the budget to prepare the plan and $10 million per year for the first three years to renew these assets.
The amount of $79 million is provided for years four to ten, subject to the completion of the asset management plan.
We are also providing an additional $2 million per year for capital works to non-coastal assets and a $20 million response fund for reactive storm damage works.
