Canterbury Regional Council and Timaru District Council have initiated a Coastal Hazard Study for the Timaru District (Project).
The purpose of the Project is to identify areas of land within the jurisdictional boundaries of Timaru District exposed to coastal hazards. The Project includes the assessment of the following two coastal hazards:
I. Coastal erosion
II. Coastal inundation
The technical outputs of this study will be used to inform delivery of the review of the Timaru District Council District Plan and will also be of significant value for a forthcoming review of the Regional Coastal Environment Plan. Outputs of the Project will be used for the development of coastal hazard planning provisions, future coastal asset planning including future coastal restoration and management initiatives, community awareness initiatives and as input data for possible future risk and vulnerability assessments.
What we need
We are looking to procure professional services to undertake coastal hazard assessments including development of a robust coastal hazard assessment methodology for the Timaru coastal environment, analysis of technical information, hazard mapping and technical reporting. The output information must stand up to peer review, be suitable for inclusion in the District and Regional Plans and able to be defended in Environment Court hearings if required.
What we don’t want
Future risk and vulnerability assessments and risk management stages are not required as part of this scope of works. These future steps may be procured later. Although we will be looking to work with the community to increase the understanding of coastal hazards during this study, community engagement is not a capability requirement of this project.
What’s important to us
A proven coastal hazard assessment methodology in regard to implementing the key statutory legislation is important to us including the availability of specialist coastal technical capability. Responses to this invitation will also be evaluated on price because value for money is important to us and our communities.
