Orewa seawall still awaits consent

No decision has yet been made on whether Auckland Council can build a seawall on Orewa Beach between Kohu Street and Marine View.

The proposal involves building a seawall approximately 600m long, with a footpath and landscaping on the public reserve on top of the wall, access ramps and stairs.

Council lodged a resource consent application for the work last December, and it was publicly notified in March; submissions closed on May 12.

A hearing took place on August 7 and was adjourned so that further information could be provided to the independent commissioners.
