The Town Centres and Connectors Transformation project is initially focusing on Waikanae and Paraparaumu town centres.
Considerable other work has already been done on most of the district’s other town centres but over time we would like to revisit and redevelop these. We would appreciate your input into the potential timing of any future upgrades. These will be considered alongside the rates affordability issue as we develop the draft Long Term Plan.
