The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
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.
The Council is holding a two-stage consultation to invite important feedback from the community on Natural Hazards. This will enable the most up-to-date and robust information to be made available through the District Plan Review maps and provisions. This programme of work will also help to support the protection of Waimakariri District’s environmental, physical and social interests.
In Stage One of the consultation (28 June – 26 July), we will ask for your insight on localised Natural Hazard issues, and in Stage Two – dates to be confirmed - we will update you on what you’ve told us, any new technical information, and discuss views on risk management and mitigation.
During both stages of the consultation, you can provide feedback by:
Rangiora, Tuahiwi, Woodend, Ravenswood, Sefton, Loburn
Kaiapoi, The Pines Beach & Kairaki, Woodend Beach and Waikuku
Please feel free to attend as many drop-ins as you'd like. You are welcome to come and go as you please.
Stage One Feedback: Please tell us what you think by5pm, Friday 26 July 2019.
Check back here at the end of July for updates on the Stage Two dates and drop-ins.
