Registrations for Turners and Growers development

Chch Council gets 10 registrations for Turners and Growers development

Ten potential developers have responded to the Christchurch City Council�fs call to register their interest in developing the block of land known as the Turners and Growers site.

�gI�em pleased with the response,�h says Allan Johnson, project manager for the development. �gThe quality of submissions is high and several of them are from groups with a strong record of development.�h

The next stage of the work on the Council-owned 1.76ha central city block is for the proposals to be evaluated. A short-list will be compiled and requests for proposals will be sent out to those who make the short list. They will then provide the Council with detailed schemes, Mr Johnson says. In launching the development plan, the Council said it was mainly seeking schemes to develop the whole site, but would consider part-proposals.

Providing more green space in this part of the Central City is another of the Council�fs aims, and prospective developers have been told they will need to include at least 5000 square metres of open public space. The Council also wants to encourage greater vitality in the area by increasing the number of people who live there. To help do this, developers have been asked for mixed-use schemes which provide a range of housing types, including those suitable for students.

�œ Bordered by Tuam, Madras, Lichfield and Barbadoes streets, the land was bought by the Council in April 2002. By working with private interests to develop the area the Council aims to kick-start a wider revitalisation and enhancement of the eastern side of the Central City

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
