Why develop a Masterplan?

It’s no secret that Wanaka and the wider district is facing unprecedented residential and visitor growth. 

The Masterplan process will focus on how the town centre works and functions in the next 30 years, including a preferred programme of transport improvements to ensure good access to and around the CBD and wider urban area of Wanaka, ie schools, airport, Three Parks etc. 

Have a look at the maps illustrating both the town centre and transport programme study area below:

The Masterplan process will also look at solutions for parking, public transport, shared spaces, alternative modes of transport and consider ways to make sure the things that make Wanaka so special are retained.   Importantly, these things will be considered as a whole.  Council will be bringing together past plans and strategies to allow for a holistic and consolidated view. This is to ensure a ‘big picture’ approach which builds on the work already done so that future developments provide the best possible outcome for the town.
