Wood Street revitalisation project
Changes at Wood Street are part of the Wood Street revitalisation project, a community co-design that came about after the Mangawhai Business Association approached Council in 2019.
The interim design, 90 percent funded by Waka Kotahi NZTA, can be tweaked and changed as part of the iterative design process. The next steps in the project include undertaking a review and survey in February where we will be asking Wood Street users what they think is working and what isn’t.
Based on early regular monitoring, we have already made changes, including:
- moving the parallel parking further over, and adding in another mobility parking space
- changing the parking time limit to 20 minutes on the same side
- An extra loading zone area in the old fire station site
There is still more work to be done, including road art design (thanks to local artist Aaron McConchie and Mangawhai Artists Incorporated), and development and activation of the shared spaces.
