The Suburban Centres fund applies to the areas covered by the eight Suburban Centre Master Plans: Edgeware Village, Ferry Road/Main Road, Linwood Village, Lyttelton, New Brighton Centre, Selwyn Street shops, Sydenham and Sumner Village Centre.
Projects will be considered that are well-planned, have partnerships already in place to deliver them within a short time-frame (4 months) and that will temporarily utilise a vacant space for primarily public benefit.
