Model, display success for City Mall consultation

Media Release 29 September 2006

Model and display a success for City Mall consultation

Staff are delighted to be run off their feet at the City Mall consultation shop. “It’s great to see how interested and enthusiastic the public are to comment on the proposed design,” says Council’s senior planner Maurice Roers.

A model of the proposed design made by locally-based Isthmus Group, the urban design company doing the design work for the Council, is displayed in the shop along with a computer generated ‘fly-through’ showing the area.
“The Model is proving very popular with the public,” said Mr Roers. “People usually fined it easier to understand the plan seeing it in 3D and its fun to look at too.

“The fly-through is in the shop window so people can see it outside our opening hours and it often has a small crowd around it.”

The City Mall consultation shop at 93 Cashel Street is open 12noon to 2pm Monday to Friday. Staff from the Christchurch City Council and Isthmus Group are on hand to explain the concepts and discuss issues.

The public can also find out more about the proposed City Mall plan by attending a public meeting, visiting out website at www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay/ or picking up a brochure at Civic Offices or any service centre or library.

Public meetings:
Open to all, but focus will be on:

- Retail / Business Tuesday 3 October 6pm,

- Shoppers / Residents Wednesday 4 October 7.30pm and

- Youth / Students Wednesday 11 October 4.30pm.

All at Our City O-Tautahi, cnr Oxford Terrace and Worcester Boulivard.
