TCDC want your feedback on whether or not the Council should approve the Mayor signing the Local Government Leaders’ Climate Change Declaration.

Click HERE to access further information, supporting documents and to submit your comments.

We ask that you please leave comments for TCDC and don’t just check your responses to the pre-formed questions. Please comment on what you would like to see Council doing to contribute towards Climate Change mitigation (e.g. using electric/hybrid vehicles for the fleet, solar power generation, etc.)

Adapting to Climate Change: Online Meetings Now Available

TCDC need your input so we can prepare for the impacts of sea-level rise related to climate change. They are holding online meetings to update you on their Shoreline Management Project and to get your feedback on adaptation options like managed retreat or coastal protection.

If you own property in the Coromandel but live elsewhere, or if you have not been able to attend the public meetings, please join these online sessions.

High risk areas, such as Whitianga, Tairua, Colville and Thames, have been identified and TCDC need your input on the possible long-term responses. 

Monday 8th November, 7pm – Whangapoua Harbour and Mercury Bay
