Matarangi and Whangapoua tsunami open days

Matarangi and Whangapoua tsunami open days

Our Council and Waikato Regional Council invite you to attend tsunami information open days on Saturday 30 January (Matarangi) and Sunday 31 January (Whangapoua).

We’re holding the open days on the Saturday and Sunday of Auckland Anniversary Weekend to ensure you and as many residents as possible can attend.

The open days provide you with an opportunity to learn more about what we understand to be the tsunami threat to Whangapoua and Matarangi. You’ll also be able to talk directly with the tsunami scientists, hazard specialists and emergency managers that have worked on this project.

We’re also keen to hear what you think should be the approach to managing the tsunami risk in these areas.

We want to know what you think about such things as:

the emergency management procedures that should be adopted
the community education approach that should be undertaken
what you think about coastal land use planning, such as restricting the location of facilities like kindergartens or rest homes being built in potential tsunami inundation paths.
