Wharekawa Coast 2120 – looking ahead


Ko te pae tata, whakamaua kia tīnā, Ko te pae tawhiti, whaia kia tata.

Secure the horizons that are close to hand and pursue the most distant horizons so that they may become close.

Grasp and monitor that which is close at hand and think towards the future.

Wharekawa Coast 2120 is a major project that will look at a wide range of issues around the coast and how we can provide for a resilient and prosperous future over the next 100 years. While acknowledging that natural hazards are a concern, we also want to look at opportunities for the growth and development of our communities on the coast, which includes Waharau, Whakatiwai, Kaiaua and Pūkorokoro-Miranda.

What a workshop!

Thanks to those who came to our first workshop on Saturday 30 November!
About 40 people spent a productive morning at the Kaiaua Community Hall hearing from technical experts, including coastal scientists, and sharing what matters most to them.

What you’ve told us so far

Overall you told us you love the coast most because of its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, small community feel, wild and natural spaces, and its unique features including marae, shorebirds, and hot pools.

You don’t want to see over-commercialisation, pests, or erosion, but you would like to see more playgrounds, kerbing and footpaths, stopbanks, and services like drain clearing and grass cutting.

The wetlands, trees, natural features and wild spaces are especially important to you. You’re also particularly concerned about flooding, lack of work opportunities, and how the community will be able to afford options to address the effects of climate change.
