High rainfall and winds have caused a number of outages in the District. Please see this link for known service disruptions.
The Ngunguru Seawall has degraded over time and is in need of repair and restoration. The Seawall is a significant infrastructure asset for the Tutukaka Coast.
Various plans and concepts have been previously developed and considered in the past. We previously developed plans following community consultation for the restoration of the wall, however these failed to gain Resource Consent from Northland Regional Council as elements of the plans did not comply with the Regional Coastal Policy.
New plans have now been developed and these do have resource consent. These new plans require some work around the established trees and resource consent is currently being sought to allow for this work to be undertaken.
The restoration work is expected to take place between October 2022 and June 2023. There are likely to be breaks in work during the peak holiday season to minimise disruption.
The plans include both the repair of existing seawall and building a new seawall as appropriate. The new / repaired seawall has been designed to allow for further height to be added in future, as needed.
Features of the seawall will include:
