We are actively planning for anticipated changes that will increase the risk of coastal hazards.
We are working with other agencies and communities to reduce the risk from natural hazards where we can, or to lessen their effects by planning for response and regeneration:
- Identifying and mapping areas susceptible to coastal inundation and coastal erosion
- Working with other agencies to develop area and regional strategies and work programmes to increase our resilience to nature's challenges
- Dealing with sand management/dune repair, dealing with minor and early erosion issues before they develop, and sand-fencing and dune-planting to trap sand and rebuild beach profiles
- The Land Drainage Recovery Programme focused on reducing the risk of flooding to the city’s most affected areas to restore flood risk to its pre-earthquake condition.
