Southland’s regional council is calling for additional funding to improve flood protections due to aging infrastructure and increased extreme weather events. The 1984 Southland floods resulted in thousands of people being displaced, 1200 homes becoming uninhabitable, and the death of over 12,000 livestock. Environment Southland acknowledges that the flood protection network, which is at least 30 years old, needs further investment to withstand the pressure from more frequent and intense weather. The council is working on climate resilience projects and plans to create a 30-year infrastructure strategy to improve the region’s ability to withstand climate change. Residents will have the opportunity to provide input on future funding during the council’s long-term plan consultation.
