City Block Consultation


Consultation has now closed.

A hearing of submissions has been set down for July 16.

The Invercargill City Council wants to hear from the community about whether it should invest up to $30 million in the City Block Development.

At a meeting on Tuesday, May 14, Council adopted consultation documents, including a Statement of Proposal, having been asked by HWCP Ltd to invest $20 million in the development.

Chief Executive Clare Hadley said Council was asking the community if it should invest up to $30 million, allowing for a contingency of $10 million to be included in the budget.

Consultation will open on Saturday, 18 May, and run until 5pm on 28 June.

Mrs Hadley said there would be multiple opportunities for the public to hear more about the proposal, beginning with a public meeting hosted by the Invercargill City Council to inform the community about the proposal, and to hear initial questions and feedback, on Monday, May 20 at the Civic Theatre.
