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 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.

The Westport 2100 Working Group is to be formally ratified at the Buller District Council meeting on 27 February 2019 before its first meeting in early March.
