PROGRESS TO DATE
The preparation of the Draft Beach Management Plan by the Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe Board has been a consultative process, where public engagement with beach users and locals has been extremely important.
The initial stage of public engagement took place in late 2019, with hui held at various locations around the Far North. A summary of the engagement feedback can be downloaded from the link below.
Following feedback from the community, the comprehensive Te Rautaki o Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe (Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe Beach Management Plan) has been developed for consultation, representing a great deal of work, including substantial community input over the last 18 months.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to early engagement, development of the draft plan, attended formal consultation events, or submitted feedback (written or verbal) to the consultation process. If you would like to read the feedback received during consultation, please click on the link. We are now in the process of reviewing your feedback as we prepare the final plan for approval at the November Board meeting.
