PC90 addresses two types of hazards - coastal erosion and coastal inundation (flooding).
Under the Northland Regional Policy Statement, District Councils are required to incorporate new coastal erosion and inundation hazard maps into their District Plans. The maps identify areas at risk over 50-year and 100-year periods.
The Northland Regional Policy Statement is a regional document that guides how people, businesses and industry can use, develop and protect Northland's resources.
District Councils also have the responsibility to include provisions in the District Plan to manage land use and subdivision within these at-risk areas.
The coastal hazard provisions will manage new and existing subdivision and development within the identified risk areas.
The provisions will support changes in land use that reduce the risk of hazards to people and property, and the maintenance and protection of natural buffers to coastal hazards, such as dune systems.
