A number of improvements are being implemented in the Rangiora town centre. This includes realigning and signalising the Cenotaph Corner intersection (High Street/Ivory Street/Ashley Street junction) and reconfiguring High Street to two-way traffic. Improvement work also includes enhancing pedestrian laneways and improving off-street car parking. These projects were signalled and approved in the Rangiora Town Centre Strategy, adopted by the Council in September 2010.
The redesign of High Street includes:

Progress update as at 21 April 2017
JFC have continued to make good progress along High Street, with more
works being completed and left tidy prior to ANZAC Day next week.
JFC completed the last section of asphalt footpath outside the Accessory
Shop and Rangiora Fish Supply. At the same time, they connected a new power
duct across to the digital clock. MainPower will be installing a new fuse for
the clock shortly, which should see it working again for the first time this

new planter being poured.
will tidy up this area in preparation for the ANZAC Day march on Tuesday, and
look to continue working in the area later in the week.
Newly poured curved concrete planter base
Newly poured straight concrete planter base
have started work in this area, with the ducting being installed last week. Unfortunately
the installation of the duct was a little harder than expected, so the work has
taken three work days longer than expected. During this time, JFC installed
several lengths of duct, re-compacted the footpath, stripped the existing
footpath, and resurfaced the entire footpath.
The final asphalt surfacing has been completed on the northern side of
the road between the BNZ and Hannah’s.

The Council is leading a project to develop a precinct bounded by High Street, Durham Street, Blake Street and Good Street incorporating new retail and office space, pedestrian laneways, public/green space and improved car parking at the Council owned off-street Blake Street car park.
The development of this plan follows a project outlined in the Rangiora Town Centre Strategy to enhance connectivity to the Blake Street car park, provide growth of the town centre to the north, and ensure character and quality of the built environment.
The preparation of the precinct plan was subject to stakeholder and public engagement and the Council approved the plan to be submitted to the Minister for Earthquake Recovery by 6 December 2014. The North of High Street redevelopment plan (pdf, 2.6 MB) provides more information.
There are various redevelopment projects underway in the Rangiora town Centre. While we endeavour to provide as much information as possible about town centre developments, the Council does not always have access to the most up-to-date details about private sector developments.
