Anzac Parade Community Consultation POSTPONED

Due to the current COVID-19 Alert Level 4 the Anzac Parade community consultations planned for 21 and 23 August at the Hakeke Community Centre and Library in Whanganui have been postponed. We will continue to update our website and will be in touch as soon as we have new consultation dates.

Anzac Parade Resilience-Building Project

This project is a small 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 will be 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 has 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 will be 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.
