Places for People Project – Thank you for your feedback

Thanks to all of you who took the time to give feedback on the Parklets and road marking changes in Raglan town centre. We appreciate your patience as the finishing touches were made to the Parklets.  Additional signage will be installed in support of the project. 

We received 74 responses to the survey and from those 78% like the road marking, 70% like the Parklets and 69% were in support of the project trial continuing. We appreciated the detail of your feedback and have noted what you love, elements that are working well for you, what you were not so keen on, and things to keep a note of. The project team is also continually observing the changes and the way that people are interacting in these spaces. It takes a while to get used to something new, especially in the centre of our town and we will certainly learn a lot as the weather warms up and more people are out and about. 

The trial period for the parklets will continue to run through until December 2021. We will check in with you again late November and will then evaluate the success of the project.  There may be some small changes and improvements made then if we need them.  If the feedback is positive the trial will be extended  through to March 2022.  

The Places for People Project has been made possible thanks to funding from the central government, through Waka Kotahi’s (NZTA) Innovating Streets fund.
