Fund available for suburban centre projects


A fund for transitional projects in suburban centres is open for applications.

Christchurch City Council approved the $50,000 Transitional City Projects Fund (Suburban Centres) in December 2013.

“The money will support community and business efforts to activate unused spaces in suburban centres”, says Urban Design and Regeneration Manager Carolyn Ingles.

“The fund is available to help realise creative and innovative ideas to use vacant land and buildings in the short term.”

“These are projects at the grassroots of the recovery: temporary community gardens, mini-parks, markets, art installations and exhibitions.”

Carolyn Ingles says the fund gives people the chance to participate in their local recovery in a ‘hands on’ way.

To qualify, applicants must be able to show that their plans are advanced and also demonstrate how the community will benefit.

The Transitional City Projects Fund (Suburban Centres) is drawn from existing capital transitional project budgets. Any continuation of the fund will be considered through the Annual Plan process.

Individuals, groups or organisations are eligible to apply for a grant provided they have not received Council funding for the same project this year. Applications are open until 26 May 2014 unless the funds are fully allocated earlier.

Terms of reference and application forms are available online at www.ccc.govt.nz/recoveryfunding
