Orewa Seawall Plan on Right Track

Auckland Council is going to seek consent to build a permanent seawall at the northern end of Orewa Beach between Kohu Street and Marine View.

Last week the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board approved the design that will be used when applying for resource consent to build the seawall.

The recommended design is for a 640 meter long seawall and includes a walkway/cycleway with six access ways to the beach.

Hibiscus and Bays Local Board Chairperson, Julia Parfitt, said that the seawall concept design has evolved as a result of a six month engagement period with the community and changes have been made to it.

Next steps

Auckland Council now expects to lodge the resource consent application in September as a result of extending the informal feedback period by several months.

The council will request that the resource consent is publicly notified.

This will enable people to have their say through a formal submission process that is likely to begin in November 2016.
