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.
