Karamea Urban Design - Stage 1 DRAFT Plan

Karamea Community Group

In a further development from the community survey and consultation that has taken place in our community over the last eighteen months on 27 January a presentation was made to the Council relating to:


  • Landscape concept design
  • Community Building (RSA) improvement concept design

WALKING/CYCLING (Market Cross to Karamea Bridge)

  • Landscape Design - Documentation
  • Construction Walking/cycling track
  • Landscape hard structures
  • Landscape soft structures
  • Compliance/Resource Consent

That presentation was supporting the Community Group's application for further Vision 2010 funding. It was the concept design prepared for the above by a team of landscape, urban and building designers:

  • Carrynne Scarlett of Scarlett Architectural Design
  • Nicole Lauenstein of a+u r b a n
  • Nigel Cowburn of Growplan Ltd

A final decision on funding is still pending but the Council has already approved the funds to go ahead with the Walking and Cycling initiative involving a loop route from Market Cross to the Karamea Bridge and back to Market Cross.

More work is required before this project will proceed including consultation and discussion on issues of access which need to be worked through with landowners and others affected by this project.

Our group will be meeting shortly to talk about how this is done but in the meantime if you want to see the Concept Plan as shown to the Council please download the DRAFT Plan (PDF file 14 MB).

There will be a public meeting organised to discuss the Community Group's plans – more on this in a future issue of the Chronicle.
