Wainui Beach Erosion Management Strategy

Gisborne District Council's strategy for managing coastal erosion at Wainui Beach.

This strategy was developed with the help of coastal experts and key stakeholders representing interest groups. Council adopted the strategy on 7 August 2014, it replaces the pervious strategy written in 2003.

Wainui Beach extends about 6km between Tuahine Point and Makorori Point. The beach consists of a predominantly sandy shoreline, backed by a substantial dune system between the 2 rocky headlands.

Development of the plan

The following are the notes and presentations from public meetings that were held to assist in the development of the strategy.
