Cromwell ‘Eye to the Future' Masterplan Progressing Well

Work on the Cromwell ‘Eye to the Future’ Masterplan has entered an important phase, with the community being asked to provide feedback on the potential future options for their town and surrounding areas.

The Cromwell Masterplan has been in development since January this year and will provide a 30-year plan for the Cromwell Basin. The feedback and analysis gathered to date has focused the Masterplan on three work streams: Managing Growth, Improving the Town Centre and Civic Facilities, and an Arts, Culture and Heritage Precinct in Old Cromwell.

Three shortlisted options have now been identified for each work stream and community feedback will be used to help select the best one.

With less than two weeks remaining until this round of consultation closes, Rationale is working closely with Central Otago District Council to assist them in getting the word out (and the feedback in) on the Masterplan options.

Rationale Infrastructure Advisor, Gavin Flynn, has been working with CODC since the beginning of the Cromwell Masterplan project and is excited to see it progressing into this next phase of engagement with the community.

“We’ve held a range of engagement events across the Cromwell Basin and the responses we’re getting back are awesome. The community is coming along for the ride and there’s a real sense of excitement around what the future might hold for Cromwell.”

“A huge amount of work and analysis has gone into the Masterplan so far and the team has been working well together. We’re particularly proud of the work we’ve done in partnership with CODC to produce an easy to read ‘Let’s Talk Options’ consultation document, which explains all the Masterplan shortlist options for the community.”

A summary of the Masterplan options, the online survey and a range of supporting information is available at Copies are available at key locations around Cromwell including the Cromwell Service Centre, New World and in Bannockburn, Pisa Moorings and Tarras.

Public consultation on the Masterplan options closes 19 November. The results will be analysed and reported back to the Cromwell Community Board and a summarised version will be made publicly available.
