Gisborne Futures is a draft document outlining a proposal for
our town character, urban design and structure plan. It is very complex reading and in it’s current form is not ready for public consumption. Whilst much effort has gone into collecting public sentiment, very little has made it into the plan itself. A peri urban village (as we have been described) does not consist of multiple story town center, dual occupancy in the residential zone and residents should not fear being pushed out of their homes by new infrastructure. In addition, there is much missing such as infrastructure for new technologies and does not consider our current/future way of life. Unlike other candidates that may be getting on this bandwagon I have made a submission to council. It is important to get this right.
This is OUR Town, OUR Home, OUR Future
