The Ashburton Central Business District (CBD) is experiencing redevelopment and Council wants to support investment and encourage revitalisation in this area.
The Council is now working through the detailed designs of the streetscape. Ideas include spaces that prioritise pedestrians and cyclists over vehicles, street lighting and layout that promotes safety and comfort, spaces to accommodate outdoor dining and socialising, a range of seating and furniture options to meet everyone's needs and planting that provides shade, colour and ambiance.
Artist impressions of what the streets could look like are displayed below:
