What do you think of our draft plan for Stanmore Road?
The Council undertook pre-construction surveying in early 2023 (and will undertake post-construction surveying in due course) to understand whether the streetscape upgrade (expected to commence in late 2023) has met the community’s aspirations and made a positive difference to users’ experience of the shopping centre.
Consultation on the Linwood Village streetscape plan has now closed. People were able to provide feedback from 9 February to 2 March 2022. During this time we heard from 62 individuals and organisations. You can view the table of consultation feedback [PDF, 8 MB] and submission analysis [PDF, 364 KB].
As a result of consultation feedback we have:
The Waikura Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and the Council approved the proposed scheme design on 31 August and 8 September 2022 respectively, on the proviso that construction does not proceed until sufficient funding is available. As the necessary funding has been found, construction is expected to commence in late 2023.
Linwood people have told us how their neighbourhood should be.
We’ve listened, and we know a streetscape that offers a sense of place and safety, and a better experience for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users is important.
We know we can’t fix everything with a landscape plan – but it’s a good place to start.
A streetscape that works for everyone – people who live or work in the area and visitors – will go a long way towards creating a better, more welcoming environment and will be a springboard for long-term change.
Our draft plan includes ideas for enhancing Linwood Village so it can become the ‘heart of the community’.
We’ve focused on safety, with wider footpaths, dedicated cycle lanes, better lighting, more trees, and improved landscaping.
We want to hear your thoughts on all aspects of this plan; what you like, what you don’t like, things we have missed or factors not considered. This is your neighbourhood, so let’s make sure we get it right.
