In 2015, Reset Urban Design was commissioned to prepare a Wanaka Lakefront Development Plan for the Queenstown Lakes District Council. The adopted development plan, covers 1.2km of the central lakefront, and is to be implemented in stages over the next 6 years. Recognising the unique character of the Wanaka lakefront, and the increasing demands and the different recreational uses, the project involved an extensive consultation process with the public and special interest groups. The masterplan is based on four big moves: enhancing the ecology, providing continuous access, improving land-use and providing a range of facilities and activities. The development plan features: an integrated lakeside park with a range of relocated car-parking, a series of promenades and pathways, shared cycleways, introduces a town plaza, adds toilets and new boating facilities and restores areas of native plantings.
