Coastal Erosion features as shown in Volume 3 and Chapter 9 of the Regional Coastal Environment Plan (RCEP) and in the proposed new Appendix 5 of the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement (RPS).
The proposed Appendix 5 of the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement (RPS) contains Coastal Hazard Zones and sea water inundation zone boundaries in the
Christchurch, Waimakariri and Selwyn districts, together with a new Appendix 6
setting out how Hazard Zones 1 and 2 have been determined. These maps are
derived from Volume 3 of the Regional Coastal Environment Plan ("RCEP") but have
been reviewed and updated for insertion into the RPS.
These proposed changes have come about in response to Action 46 of the Land use Recovery Plan (LURP) which directs Environment Canterbury
to make any changes or variations to its objectives, policies and methods in the
Regional Policy Statement and regional plans that are appropriate to enable and
support recovery and rebuilding in accordance with the Recovery Plan.
