Why is this plan being developed now ahead of the proposed master plan for the whole park?
This plan is being consulted on now as we want
to allow ourselves time to make changes in the park to combat the effects of
projected climate change. The outcome of this consultation process will be to
have a response plan for our coastal areas which we can use to do work which
will reduce the effect of climate change on the assets in the park. The effects
of climate change on the park can include storm damage, more frequent flooding,
drought and extreme winds.
When will the new draft PNP be out and ready for public feedback?
need to fit the two month public consultation around Council elections, and
there is a lot to address in the new plan. We hope to be able to consult early
in the spring. Awaiting democratic service advice.
How has feedback from the management plan (PNP) review preliminary consultation been considered?
have had initial conversations with the Paekakariki Community Board, Iwi, Hapu
and internal Greater Wellington specialists to get to this final draft of the
plan. The feedback has been mostly supportive of the changes in the plan. This
next step of having community discussions will focus on proposals that are
How is climate change currently affecting this part of the coast and what are the predictions for the future?
in this section of the park has been through storm surge events. Future
predictions indicate more extreme rainfall events and an increase in frequency
and intensity of storm events. The plan has been developed with these
predictions in mind.
How have Iwi concerns and aspirations been incorporated into this plan
We have and will continue to discuss the plan
with Iwi. Discussions to date have been positive and they have aspirations to
be active in the restoration efforts. Areas of significance to Iwi have been
identified in the plan.
When will coastal erosion in the rest of the northern end of the park be considered?
The rest of the park is currently under consideration with planning and investigation works underway for realignment of the coastal track south of Raumati. This will be included into in the overall park master plan which we plan to get underway in 2020. The master plan will draw on all the valuable feedback provided to date including meetings and workshops. Facilities most under threat are currently in the Wellington Road entrance area, so we are tackling this area first.
