Dogs on leash on Oneroa walkway
23 Oct 2015
We want dog owners to be aware of the rules around where dogs must be on a leash in public, after several reported incidents of uncontrolled and unleashed dogs attacking both people and other dogs along the Oneroa walkway. “Our Dog Control Bylaw lists the public places where you can exercise your dog on a leash and where you can’t,” says enforcement manager Jim Single. At the Environmental and Regulatory meeting on Wednesday, the committee recommended the bylaw be amended to make wording clearer that the walkway was included as part of the beaches listed in schedule 2 of the bylaw. “No changes have been made to the rules or locations listed in the bylaw,” says Mr Single, “We’ve just added more explanation to the city beaches that are listed in the on-leash areas under schedule 2 of the bylaw, to make it more clear where leashes should be used on the Oneroa walkway.” The new explanation says: Read more >>
New information on coastal flooding risk
23 Oct 2015
We have a new report detailing the risk of coastal flooding and possible effects to the district's coastline. The report includes mapping of coastline in Poverty Bay, Wainui, Tolaga Bay, Tokomaru Bay, Anaura Bay, Hicks Bay and Te Araroa. “The Gisborne district coastline extends some 500km,” says environmental and regulatory group manager Kevin Strongman, “With a lot of exposure to the extreme weather forces of the South Pacific Ocean, it means that flooding as result of extreme weather events, potential sea level rise and coastal erosion in some areas, are a reality for our communities.” The report identifies areas in the coastal environment that are potentially affected by coastal hazards over at least 100 years, as required by the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement (NZCPS). It does not include flooding from a tsunami event. Council has commissioned a separate report on Tsunami risk which is due later this year. “We are in the process of interpreting this report and mapping, and deciding which scenarios are appropriate to be used for Building Act and Resource Management Act purposes,” says Mr Strongman.
