Question 3 The Council's role

Page history last edited by Geoff Stone 13 years, 10 months ago

Question 3. Do you support the Council’s role outlined in the draft Framework?



Mt Cook Mobilised initial response - support for Council's role


YES YES, and ...




a) Do you support the Council’s role outlined in the draft Framework?


We appreciate that Council’s role in facilitating a thoughtful and inclusive planning approach.  But, we reiterate our concern that Council may have insufficient control to make the draft framework a reality (as indicated in the artists impressions).  We believe the Council will need to be more prescriptive, through establishing clear design guides, and more interactive on an ongoing basis, as new developments are proposed.  We would expect the Council to use the learnings from its interactions  and evaluations to make ongoing improvements to the Framework, and to this end suggest that there should also be periodic formal reviews of the Framework every five years.


b) Are there any other key roles?


Given our concerns about the limitations of Council’s present role (described above), we want Council to take a greater lead – possibly including investment in public/private partnerships – in:

  • the initial design, construction and management of the first few new buildings
  • the formative and inclusive evaluation of initial developments before, during and post construction.
