Future Buller is a joint long-term project between Buller District Council and the University of Canterbury to find ways to respond to the changing climate and related events.

Our climate is changing.
Buller needs to plan for now and the future.

Many of our communities already face significant risks, and these are only expected to increase over time as our climate changes.

While climate hazards threaten some aspects of our lives, there are many parts that aren’t affected or if they are at risk, can be adapted.

As a community, we need to make changes to adapt to these hazards and all of Buller needs to be involved in this planning and decision-making process. Part of getting involved is having your say about what’s most important and sharing your ideas.

Future Buller is your opportunity to be involved and have your say.

Share your ideas for the future

Read what others have shared.
