Westport 2100 Working Group

How do we manage the natural hazards facing the Westport community? What do we need to do as we look towards the future? These are the questions that the Westport 2100 Working Group will be considering.

The West Coast Regional Council and Buller District Council are seeking applications from the community to become members of the Westport 2100 Working Group.

The purpose of the working group is to engage with the Westport community and work together, with the Councils, to identify a pathway forward for the town for the benefit of future generations. This project has a long term focus and will result in recommendations to both the Buller District Council and West Coast Regional Council for future work programmes for civil defence, hydrology and operations.

Applications are currently being sought for the Working Group.

If you live in the wider Westport area, or can demonstrate a close connection to this area, and want to contribute to this process, then we want to hear from you. The Group will include up to six members from the community with a range of backgrounds to ensure a cross section of values, understanding and perspectives of the community. ​

The Group will meet monthly, with additional workshops and meetings as required. Meetings will be held in Westport with meeting times to be set by the Group.
