A Plan for Making the Old Work with the New



A Plan for Making the Old Work with the New

Dunedin (Tuesday 27 November) - The DCC is seeking community input into the priorities for the Warehouse Precinct Revitalisation Plan.
In the Long Term Plan 2012/13, a budget of $500,000 was allocated to amenity improvements in the Warehouse Precinct, bounded by Princes Street, Police Street, Cumberland Street and Queens Gardens. A draft revitalisation plan has been drawn up and the DCC is interested in the community’s feedback.

Dr Glen Hazelton, DCC Policy Planner – Heritage says, “This is the first stage in a long-term approach for improvements in this area. We want to build on the work that is already being done, such as the economic re-use of several of the heritage buildings and the increasing number of creative industries that are positioning themselves in the area.”

The Draft Plan proposes that the first stage is focussed on the Vogel Street section to ensure the allocated 2012/12 budget is put to best use. “There is already a lot happening in Vogel Street and we can have a bigger effect on a small area. We’re also less constrained by big projects that may be planned in the future that could require rework,” Dr Hazelton says.

“We’re working closely with local building owners, businesses, residents and the creative community to make sure the Plan describes steps to develop the area retaining its distinctive features and ensuring its viability and growth.”
The public feedback can be sent to centralcityplan@dcc.govt.nz until 4pm, Monday 14 January and a public workshop session is being held in December. The date and venue will be confirmed shortly.

The draft Plan is available at www.dunedin.govt.nz/warehouseprecinct.

Max Rashbrooke: On How To Make Government
More Open

It’s true that New Zealand scores well on many international rankings of openness... Those findings are all important, and welcome. But we cannot ignore the fact that there are still serious problems.

For a start, those international surveys, while often complimentary, have also pinpointed major weaknesses: political donations are badly regulated, for instance, and appointments to government boards frequently go to those with strong political connections. More>>
