Council to consider Master Plan ahead of public feedback process

Invercargill City Council will next week receive the Invercargill City Master Plan document – setting out a framework to create a city centre with heart.

The Master Plan is based on the views and ideas of a wider range of city interest groups and individuals, gathered as part of a city engagement plan during 2020.

The intention is to call for further feedback from these groups and the wider community once the council has reviewed the Master Plan at its meeting on 1 December.

The Master Plan seeks to bring life, fun and activity to the centre of Invercargill.

It includes some initial projects, along with a range of strategies for making the city a more exciting, attractive place to be.

These include creating precincts to focus activities such as entertainment, retail and open spaces, along with proposals to make the city more pedestrian and cycle-friendly and to introduce new design to enhance streetscapes.

The plan does not try to achieve everything all at once; along with some initial improvement projects, its aim is to set the scene for future planning.

Council is creating a framework for activity and investment in the city that brings it all together and guides future work.

The Master Plan will be received by the Council at its Infrastructural Services meeting on 1 December 2020. Once received, the public will have the opportunity to offer feedback on the Master Plan until 20 January 2021.
