CCRU comments on Mfe 2017 Coastal hazards and climate change document


CCRU and its subject matter experts were recently invited by the Ministry for the Environment (Mfe) to comment on the December 2017 Coastal Hazards publication as the Mfe are undertaking minor revisions and updating on their December 2017 report.

It is CCRUs’ view that feedback and engagement with all relevant parties throughout this process, particularly at this early stage, is essential. Accordingly, we thank MfE for giving us this opportunity to submit.

CCRU have been engaging with the Ministry for the Environment on Coastal Hazard views since CCRUs’ inception in 2015.

In December 2017, the Mfe released its publication “Coastal hazards and climate change – guidance for local governments”. This Guidance was developed as a starting point to support councils in managing and adapting to the increased coastal hazard risks posed by climate change and sea level rise.

CCRU is committed to supporting community engagement and consensual adaptation to the effects of climate change. As a community partner with Regenerate Christchurch in their South New Brighton and Southshore Project, as well as with Christchurch City Council for other coastal parts the City, this guidance is critical for us because it will inform both our Local Government colleagues as well as our communities.
