Debris Flow Hazard in the Pohara and Ligar Bay Area - GNS Report
The Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences Ltd have completed their investigation and report on the debris flow hazard in the Pohara and Ligar Bay area.
Council staff are currently preparing a scoping report on the debris flow hazard and its implications to the Council, Council assets and private landowners. The scoping report will be tabled, along with the GNS report, to a Council meeting early in 2013. This will be an opportunity for Councillors to consider the report and assess what response may be taken and to direct staff accordingly. Any comments that you wish Council to include in their analysis should be made in writing by 31 January 2013.
Council staff are available to assist with any queries about the report’s contents and the debris flow hazard.
