Draft design options for The Parade were on display at drop-in sessions on 3 May and 7 May at the Island Bay Baptist Church. The window for feedback on the draft design options is now closed, but you can view them by clicking here.
All of the feedback obtained through the drop in sessions, past workshops, and other channels will be combined with other technical information by Tonkin and Taylor to develop high level designs. These high level designs will be provisionally costed for inclusion in the Council’s annual planning cycle in late May 2017.
Designs will be further developed (including feasibility assessments) for consideration by councillors in July 2017, along with the current and former layouts. Community feedback and the outcomes of the Love the Bay process will also be included for their consideration.
Councillors will make a decision on the recommendation to formally consult with the public on the developed design options, during which any interested individuals or organisations can make formal written and oral submissions about the prospective designs. If you’ve subscribed to the Love the Bay newsletter below, we’ll be sure to let you know when the formal consultation is open, and it will also be publicised through other channels.
Finally, analysis of the consultation feedback, budgetary implications, and changes made as a result will be presented to councillors with a recommendation on the way forward. Councillors will consider this and make a decision on a design approach with the intention for implementation starting in spring 2017.
