- We understand the importance of the community’s views and ensure they remain engaged throughout the process
- Integration of related strategies, plans and projects to enable a sequencing of priorities.
- We know what the future holds for the Oamaru Harbour Space and its surrounding areas.
- Identify key land uses, activities and improvements through a spatial plan
- Development of a plan that acts as a funnel for development initiatives.
- The Heritage features all require investment now and into the future, which is beyond our current planning and financial means, leading to further decline and potential loss
- A lack of shared vision is leading to ad-hoc decisions, causing uncertainty and community tension, meaning we are missing opportunities to remedy the key issues.
- Incomplete projects, disjointed elements, a lack of obvious connection to our town centre and the surrounding area, causes confusion, diminishing people’s experience.
- Coastal processes, climate change, new wildlife habitats, poor visual amenity from built form, all provide mounting environmental pressure and investment uncertainty.
- Enhancing the Harbour in sympathy with the town’s heritage, creating a unique experience that residents are proud of, attracting visitors
- Confidence - attracting increased investment in the Harbour area
- Keep adding to the Harbour area’s vitality in a planned way that complements and benefits the town centre where possible.
- Protecting wildlife and improving underlying environmental outcomes, helping people enjoy and understand both.
