Anzac Parade Resilience-Building Project

This project is part of a larger process led by Horizons Regional Council to help communities living in the region become more resilient to natural hazards.

The project aims to create a co-designed strategy to reduce flood risk and increase community resilience in Anzac Parade. The feasibility of a range of community-wide and property-specific interventions are being assessed.

Recommendations will be made based on the implications of alternative interventions for flood risk reduction, resilience building, and resident and community well-being.
 
As a first step, Horizons appointed Massey University to facilitate a community engagement process for Anzac Parade residents and other key stakeholders to inform the Council's viability assessment of resilience-building actions in the area.
 
Among others, we are working with residents, interested and affected parties in Whanganui, and tangata whenua (Te Runanga o Tupoho, Ngā Tāngata Tiaki o Whanganui, and Te Mata Puo) and Whanganui District Council as well as key government agencies and other parties concerned about flood risk along Anzac Parade.
