The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
People love to live in Rangiora. The popularity of our main town is proven by the speed at which the population is growing.
Over the next year, the Council is embarking on a significant project that will plan for Rangiora’s future in two main ways:
Since 2000, the number of people who live here has almost doubled, from 10,000 in 2001 to over 18,000 by 2018. It is projected that by 2048, more than 30,000 people will call Rangiora home.
The District Development Strategy identified areas for future residential growth in areas to the east and west of Rangiora. As these new neighborhoods emerge, we need to think about:
About 60% of Waimakariri District’s residents view the Rangiora Town Centre as their local service centre. Yet we still experience a significant retail ‘leakage’ – dollars that could be spent at our local retailers but are not.
A good town centre is not just a place to shop; it has many functions – retail, commercial, recreational, community and entertainment – that together, create a place where people like to spend time.
As our population continues to grow, it's hugely important that we continue our efforts in enabling the Rangiora Town Centre to be vibrant, attractive, functional and relevant to our residents.
We’ll use your ideas and feedback, along with advice from technical experts and other interested parties, to develop a revised draft Rangiora Town Centre Strategy and residential structure plans for Rangiora.
A draft Rangiora Town Centre Strategy will be released for public consultation in early 2020, and will be presented to Council for adoption by mid-2020. Draft Structure Plans for Rangiora east and west will be included in the Proposed District Plan in late 2020, on which the community has the opportunity to comment.
