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.

have installed the seats for the project, despite a few issues such as the
concrete setting far slower than expected, due to the freezing cold weather.
have installed the new brass street names on the new planter, and have replaced

have some remaining works to do, including installing some new bollards by
Resene Paints, to discourage drivers from parking on the footpath. We are

next phase of work for the High Street Upgrade is likely to be the upgrading of
the Good Street Laneway, and the upgrading of the footpath on the northern side
of High Street between Good Street and the Gables Arcade. This work will be
undertaken in conjunction with new building development in these areas.
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.
