Scoping and Feasibility Study of Coastal Protection Works for the Haumoana – Te Awanga Coastline

This report provides an analysis of the feasibility of protecting the Haumoana coastline through the construction of a series of groynes.

It considers a current design proposal for these structures, the outcomes of an iterative peer review process on the engineering feasibility and costs of the proposal, and the findings of a cost‐benefit analysis of alternatives to arrive at an overall conclusion on project feasibility, within the national and regional policy context of the sustainable management of the coast.

This technical report will be superseded by the Joint Coastal Hazards Strategy due to be released by 2018.
