The 2017 report provides detailed information on inundation (coastal flooding) and erosion for the main inhabited coastal parts of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula. Four climate change and sea-level rise scenarios have been considered out to 2065 and 2120.

A new Tonkin and Taylor report shows that under a worst case climate change scenario, flooding could affect nearly 25,000 coastal city and Banks Peninsula properties in the next 50 to 100 years.

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

The Mayor is calling on the Government for help in developing a sensible way forward for working with communities on coastal hazards.

The fallout from the Tonkin & Taylor report on Christchurch's likely coastal haza...
