Planning for natural hazards and a changing environment

Using knowledge gained from the November 2016 earthquake, Kaikōura District Council is proposing changes to the Natural Hazards chapter of the District Plan focusing on the effects of flooding, earthquakes, landside debris and liquefaction.

The District Plan provides the rules for how people can build on or develop land and how the environment is managed. The proposed changes will improve community resilience and help protect their assets from changes happening in the environment.
