TCDC SHORELINE MANAGEMENT PLANS
If you are interested in the Coromandels coastal environment, our Council is now looking for volunteers to join four Coastal Panels that help inform our Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) around our Thames-Coromandel coastline.
This major coastal management project will define the flooding and erosion risks to people and the natural environment across all parts of our coastline over the next century and beyond.
If you would like to take part further information can be found at: https://www.tcdc.govt.nz/coastal
Expressions of interest close on June 11, 2020.
