Edgeware Village Masterplan

Creating a vision for the redevelopment of an earthquake-damaged centre

Boffa Miskell was commissioned by Christchurch City Council to assist with the urban design aspects of developing a Master Plan that presents a future vision for the redevelopment of Edgeware Village in Christchurch. It was prepared in response to the damage caused to the centre in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and formed part of the Council’s Suburban Centres Recovery Programme.

The Masterplan outlines the issues affecting the village post-earthquake, identifies a vision, goals and specific actions for both private and public spaces, as well as community-focused initiatives. An implementation plan to indicate timing and leadership for the proposed actions is also outlined.

As part of the development of the Masterplan, a number of stakeholder workshops and public drop-in events were held in order to identify concerns, aspirations and priorities from a range of perspectives, as well as to obtain feedback on draft options. This input, along with technical considerations has helped inform the preparation of the vision, goals and projects.

The actions covered in the Masterplan include:

  • improving the public realm (streetscape enhancements);
  • enhancing courtyards, laneways and off-street car parking areas;
  • outlining concept ideas for the rebuilding of earthquake-damaged sites and future development opportunities;
  • addressing long-term commercial demand within the District Plan; and
  • supporting business and community initiatives.
