Riverlink Summer Engagement Programme

23 days ago



The RiverLink Summer events programme showcased the Te Awa Kairangi / Hutt River as a
destination while promoting the vision for RiverLink.

The Riverbank beach provided a fantastic backdrop for casual conversations to occur at the information container on market days, after people had bought their veggies for the week. Plenty of people making use of the Hutt River Trail stopped to find out what the container was all about as well. With the RiverLink container having a presence over the summer, the team got to know some of the families regularly using the space – which was lovely.

Over the lazy summer days, (with a few downpours to keep us on our toes) all sorts of issues were covered such as transport linkages, city growth, the future of the market, the Hutt River’s water depth and toxic algae. There was also interest around associated projects including the Te Awa Kairangi / Hutt Environmental Strategy Action Plan and Hutt Central City spatial planning.
