Draft Edgeware Village Master Plan available for public comment

Christchurch City Council today released the Draft Edgeware Village Master Plan for public comment. The Council-led Plan has been prepared to support the recovery and rebuild of Edgeware’s Village Centre in response to the damage caused by the earthquakes.
The Plan is available to view from Monday 4 March 2013 in any of the Council’s open service centres and libraries. It is also available online at www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay
The final date for written comments is 5pm on Wednesday 10 April 2013.

City Planning Unit Manager Brigitte de Ronde says the feedback received on the Plan will help guide any modifications to the Plan to make sure it best reflects the local community’s aspirations and hopes for the future of the centre.

“We are keen to hear about any aspect of the Plan, but particularly on what people think of widened footpaths and the shared space concept within the Village Centre. This idea accommodates cyclists travelling along the proposed major cycleway between the Central City and the northern suburbs via Colombo Street and Trafalgar Street. We would also like to know whether people like the idea of a paved, raised road at the same level as the foothpath. This is designed to encourage traffic to slow down – reinforcing a pedestrian focus for the Village Centre.

“We would also like feedback on whether the ideas for future private developments are achievable. These ideas include encouraging more intensive two-storey development along the road frontage, with new parking areas to the rear,” she says.

Mayor Bob Parker says involvement from the local community has been a big factor in the delivery of this Draft Master Plan.

“We need to continue to hear from the community at this crucial stage in the master planning process. I would, therefore, encourage locals and other interested parties to get involved – all ideas are welcomed,” he says.
