Supporting Matarangi after the cyclones

 

After the intense rain and flooding combined with high tides and extreme seas Matarangi is left with substantial erosion particularly on the eastern coast and north of the sandspit. Significant parts of the golf course have suffered loss to the sea. The Matarangi to Rings Beach track has also sustained considerable damage.

There was a quick response from the Volunteer Fire Service and the Emergency Management Committee, together with many volunteers to clear the roads and help with flooded areas.

We have learned much about how to make Matarangi more resilient to future weather events and other emergencies.

The Matarangi Community Trust, along with council and others, is taking a proactive role in repairs and restoration as well as protection of the Matarangi foreshore and its tracks. We are supporting initiatives to be better prepared for future emergencies.
