What is Kaiaua Coast 2120 about?

A jointly developed and community-led plan – Kaiaua Coast 2120.

  • Working together with our communities, councils and iwi to look at a range of issues over the next 100 years.
  • Using technical expertise to help us understand the issues.
  • Planning how we will respond to natural hazard risks in the future, because recognising what we know about these risks may change 10, 20 and 100 years down the track.
  • Looking at opportunities for the growth and development of our communities on the Kaiaua Coast.
