This toolkit is for you - community groups, or individuals, who are looking for ideas and information on how to shape and enhance your place, be it your local neighbourhood or the commercial centre in which you run a business.
It takes a place to create a community and a community to create a place.
Project for Public Spaces
Our vision for Ōtautahi Christchurch is to be a city of opportunity for all. A city open to new ideas, new people and new ways of doing things; a place where anything is possible.
This toolkit is a resource for community-led place-making projects. It is designed to provide an understanding of what is required to get such projects planned, designed and delivered, an indication of the time and resources needed, and how and when the Council and other agencies should or could be involved.
The information provided here is applicable across a range of projects, suitable in neighbourhoods or commercial centres. However, some information is tailored for business owners who wish to improve the appeal and performance of their commercial centre.
This toolkit is a living document, so we'll update it from time to time. We welcome your feedback using the reference 'Shape Your Place Toolkit'.
We hope this toolkit empowers you to shape your place in Ōtautahi Christchurch.
