Do you live in the Lyttelton Harbour / Whakaraupō area? Do you want to contribute to planning for the impacts of sea level rise?
Council is starting a process of working with communities to plan for the impacts of sea level rise. We’re starting with communities in the Lyttelton Harbour / Whakaraupō area and we are running an Expressions of Interest process for Coastal Panel representatives. The Coastal Panel is a diverse group of community and rūnanga representatives from the Lyttelton Harbour / Whakaraupō area (along with some city-wide representation) whose role is to provide informed recommendations to Council for adaptation plans that allow communities impacted by coastal hazards to respond to changes over time.
The link below provides more detail about the Coastal Panel, the types of people we are looking for and it has a link to both the Terms of Reference for the Coastal Panel and the Expressions of Interest form for people to let us know they are keen. We are looking for at least two young people (aged under 25 years) to also sit on the Coastal Panel. We will be recognising people’s contributions through payment of an honorarium.
If you are interested, please apply before the deadline of 6 December 2021.
