How was the Strategy developed?

Jim GerardThe draft Strategy was developed with the help of specialist urban design and transport consultants, and guided by a Reference Group that includes community groups, businesses, developers, Enterprise North Canterbury, the Rangiora-Ashley Community Board and Council members. Through three ‘Inquiry by Design’ workshops, this group shaped and refined the concepts presented in this document.

A survey relating to the future of Rangiora was also opened to the public and the responses were used as a ‘sound check’ to make sure we were on the right track.

This work builds on the previous Rangiora Town Centre Strategy (RTC2020) adopted by the Council in 2010, which proved successful in bringing about exciting developments and greater vitality in the Town Centre.  Implementation of RTC2020 is now largely completed.  Archived updates and information about RTC2020 are available here.
