Eastern Visions

‘Share an Idea’ was a successful council campaign that gave folk a voice in what they wanted to see in the CBD. This is a similar initiative for the severely affected east side of town, except this time it is run by the community.

Here you are invited to ‘share an idea for the east’. Anyone can contribute their ideas and visions for a specific suburb, the Avon River residential red zone or for the east as a whole.

Every entry is saved into a central database, the results will then be analysed and published. This is an open database and there will be free access to the raw data and analyses.

‘Eastern visions’ stalls will be set up at all the major event hubs of the Spring River Festival taking place over Labour Weekend. At these stalls festival-goers will be able to write their ideas onto notes which will be entered into the database.

Submit your own vision for the Eastern Suburbs

Riccarton Racecourse market might be looking for a new home... why not move it to an Eastern suburb. There must be plenty of rezoned 'greenspace' available and it would bring visitors to the East
