Written by Northland Regional Council   
Wednesday, 01 July 2009

A series of meetings with residents of some of Northland’s most flood-prone communities has begun and is already paying dividends according to local authority river management staff.

The Northland Regional Council (NRC) has identified 27 catchments around Northland as priorities for flood risk planning and has invited people living in them to meet to update existing knowledge about - and help find possible solutions to – flooding issues.

The NRC has scheduled 12 public meetings in a fortnight as part of its ‘Priority Rivers Flood Risk Reduction Project’, with the first held at the Council’s Whangarei headquarters on 29 June

Bruce Howse, the Council’s Land/Rivers Senior Programme Manager, says about 20 members of the public had turned up to a positive 2.5 hour meeting with Council river management staff, a project consultant and local Regional Councillor Craig Brown which had delivered up some valuable information.

“There was definitely some useful information gleaned, particularly from people within the Otaika catchment.  We also made a number of very useful contacts and established who some of the key people are in these flood-prone areas.”

He says the Council will be able to work with those new contacts to gather information that will be critical to assessing future flood risk reduction measures.

  • Ngunguru; Tuesday 14 July, 6pm, Ngunguru Memorial Hall. (Ngunguru)
