Have Your Say. City Block Consultation

The Southland Business Chamber is currently surveying our membership asking for feedback on funding for the City Block and City Streets Upgrade Stage 2. This survey will close on Friday 4 February 2022 at 5pm to provide us time to prepare a submission to the Invercargill City Council on your behalf. 

What are the next steps for City Block?

Invercargill City Council is consulting on what level of funding to provide to ICL to enable the completion of the City Block Development and what level of investment to make into City Centre Streets Stage 2 – Kelvin Street and remainder of Esk Street. 

Invercargill City Council and the community have recognised that in order to support economic and population growth a vibrant and healthy CBD is needed.

To date the City Block development has been progressed within the anticipated budget. However there is a shortage of bank funding for the development stage of the project due to changes of economic environment and increased costs mean a further investment is required to complete the project.

Stage 1 of City Streets Upgrade is on schedule. It is now time to decide what level of investment to make into Stage 2.

What are your preferred options for City Block and City Centre Streets Stage 2?
