Northland’s coast is in a current state of erosion. The aim of the Coastal Protection Works Policy is to make it easier for our community to understand what coastal protection works can be done, which ones Council will lead, which homeowners can lead, and when and how Council will help with landowner-led coastal protection works.

Before you make any decisions regarding coastal protection, it’s best to reach out to us first. Come and visit us at Council, and bring along any technical drawing or supporting information about the property requiring coastal protection.
