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
Looking Ahead

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’s happened so far

At our first workshop in November last year, you shared your thoughts on what you love about your place and the things you’re not so keen on.

Since then, we’ve appointed a community panel (based on your nominations) who’ve been busy learning more about hazards in the area and what this means for the future. They’ve also been on a field trip and found lots of places where improvements could be made.

You know your community best – thanks for sharing your local knowledge.

Upcoming community meeting

The planned Wharekawa Coast 2120 community catch up on Sunday 16 August, has been postponed with an alternative date to be decided.

We need more time to prepare for the community catch-up in light of a request from the Community Panel for some specific information. Keep an eye out for a new date.
