Palmerston North City Centre Framework

Helping Palmerston North City Council develop a cohesive framework for its city centre.

Since October, we have been helping Palmerston North City Council develop a cohesive framework for its city centre, which will help deliver the design drivers set out in its Urban Design Strategy.

The Framework project is intended to help coordinate public and private investment and includes establishing a new network of city centre streets and open spaces, as well as providing for future development.

We have been preparing and supplying visual and written material to help articulate the design intent and has facilitated a number of Council officer and councillor workshops. Wellington design team leader Marc Tomes says the project is very much about working in partnership with Council officers.

“Together, we’re looking to deliver the city’s urban design aspirations of achieving a vibrant, caring, innovative and sustainable city centre by establishing and embedding high quality design outcomes.”
