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.

Gordon Campbell: A Govt. Christmas Bad News Dump -The Skycity Convention Center Blowout & A Negative MBIE Review

If the government really did have good tidings of great joy you can bet it wouldn’t be strewing them about at Christmas time – which is, traditionally, the dumping ground for terrible news that the government fervently hopes the public will be too distracted to notice. And so verily this Christmas Eve we learn of (a) the explosion of costs to the taxpayer and ratepayer of the vile SkyCity convention centre in Auckland and that (b) the government’s flagship MBIE “super-ministry” run by its Minister of Everything is a disaster zone of incompetence and mismanagement. MBIE is a Titanic looking for an iceberg, or so it would seem. More>>
