A 12-year programme of activities to be undertaken by Council to create a Central City which is vibrant, safe, attractive and where people want to spend their time. This action plan was developed following the completion of a Public Space Public Life survey in Christchurch by Gehl Architects. The intention was to link the actions to three-yearly reviews of the Council's Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP).
Of the 66 projects, almost half were at that time already funded in the 2009-19 LTCCP, 25 were new and the remainder needed to be realigned with work already being done by Council. Some projects required further investigation including identifying options, evaluating users and benefits and public consultation.
The Public Space Public Life survey and the City for People Action Plan both informed central city recovery planning after the earthquakes, providing valuable data and information with many actions remaining relevant to achieve a vibrant and prosperous central city.
