CHRISTCHURCH Coastal Residents United say the city council gave them "false hope" when agreeing to collaborate on altering coast. Outrage over council rejection

September 29, 2016

Christchurch City Council chief executive Karleen Edwards says LIMs should not be wordsmithed by committee.

Controversial coastal hazards notations will stay on affected Christchurch property records, and they don't need to be fully accurate.

Chief executive Karleen Edwards said the council did not need to change the Land Information Memorandums (LIMs) for properties at risk of flooding or coastal erosion.

"This is not a negotiation process with property owners – or equally, prospective purchasers – about what is included...

Scientists rate highly in the annual surveys of the most trusted professions, not far behind stalwart teachers, pilots, health professionals and firefighters and a long way above the ignominiously ranked politicians and journalists.

If the public are to believe in scientists, and science, they need to trust their work is accurate and robust. The implications of science can have major repercussions on our lives.

The Christchurch City Council has changed the details on property records about coastal hazards, but affected residents want the information removed entirely.


They are not happy with the changed wording on the Land Information Memorandum (LIM) reports and are vowing to continue their fight to discredit the Tonkin & Taylor report on which the information is based.


"We have been working with the council to get this overturned and we will continue to do so," said Mark Munro, spokesman for the Christchurch Coastal Resident...

Will climate change sea rise threaten small coastal communities like Gore Bay on the eastern coast of the South Island more than in the past?


The coastal hazard proposal in the review limits intensification (including new building and subdivision) in areas likely to be susceptible to coastal erosion within the next 50 years, or vulnerable to sea water inundation associated with a one in 50 year storm event.


Less restrictive controls are proposed for areas identified as potentially susceptible to coastal erosion within...
