New Approach Employed to Address Erosion

A multi-agency and community partnership approach will be employed to address potential erosion issues identified at Sunset Beach, Port Waikato.

Last year, Waikato District Council commissioned a consultant to report on potential erosion issues in the area after the local community board expressed concerns regarding damage to public assets.

Service Delivery General Manager, Tim Harty, said the GHD report highlights likely ongoing erosion and potential implications for assets and properties in the future, and recommends a multi-agency approach between Waikato District Council, Waikato Regional Council and Department of Conservation to support the community.

Erosion is a natural occurrence in coastal areas and Sunset Beach is a constantly changing environment with dynamic natural processes shaping the beach and adjacent land. The difference will be how we work with, or manage, the natural phenomena for the future. That’s why a multi-agency approach working with the community is the best way forward,” he said.

Mr Harty said that the report is being shared with potential affected property owners.
