As part of the District Plan Review, we’re updating Waimakariri District Natural Hazards information and considering how we manage associated risks.
In June and July, we held the first stage of a two-part consultation to gather local insight about Natural Hazards. We’re now in Stage Two of the consultation and would like your feedback on how we manage Natural Hazard risks in Waimakariri District.
Local community insight on Natural Hazards and feedback on managing risks helps to ensure the most up-to-date and robust information is available through the maps and provisions in the reviewed District Plan. This programme of work also helps to support the protection of Waimakariri District’s environmental, physical and social interests.

Like many places in New Zealand, Waimakariri District is geographically diverse, reaching from the mountain ranges to the ocean. Because of this, the District is susceptible to a number of possible Natural Hazards including flooding, erosion in coastal areas, earthquake faults and liquefaction.
As part of its District Plan Review, Waimakariri District Council is updating Natural Hazard maps and provisions (objectives, policies and rules) to help manage risk and uncertainty. The District Plan is a statutory document that provides the rules for how people can build on or develop land, whether it is residential, commercial or rural – it’s essentially the planning rulebook for building and development in the District.
When the Natural Hazards maps and provisions are completed, these will be included in the reviewed District Plan and help to guide development. The information will be on Council’s website, Land Information Memoranda, and property files, and will also be used by the Council when processing resource and building consents to ensure any new information is taken into consideration.
