Rototuna Revisited revealed
The Rototuna village has taken another leap towards reality with the release today of a revised village layout (modified from the original proposals following community feedback).
Community feedback was sought on two design proposals (Rototuna A and Rototuna B).
Rototuna Project Manager Natasha Ryan said the feedback was “just fantastic” with great ideas to add or things that need to be addressed.
“It’s exciting to see the community voice emerging from the design. There is a lot of detail to develop and the project team are now embedding the feedback into design briefs for the next stages of work”.
The project team have now incorporated the feedback into a new design (that they have dubbed Rototuna Revisited).
Key elements of the revised design include:
• having clearer
lines of sight and walkways between facilities throughout
• prioritising pedestrians, cyclists and mobility scooters on North City Rd
• increasing the number of specialised car parks close to community facilities (for people with higher needs)
• moving the skatepark and playground so they are further away from the library entrance
• ensuring the village square is a connecting space between all elements
• adding a public toilet.
The Council will consider the approach for the implementation plan in June. Another Rototuna update will be sent out following this.
