New roads, upgrades and Special Charge Schemes

When there is a request or need for the construction or upgrade of road, footpath or drainage infrastructure that will benefit a defined group of properties (e.g. a particular street), the usual practice is for Council to partially fund the works and seek landowner co-contributions through a 'Special Charge Scheme.'

The process, amount of contribution and legislation for establishing these schemes is explained in Council's Special Charge Scheme for Infrastructure Works Policy.

Gisborne Movement Network Study

The Gisborne Movement  Network Study(PDF, 3MB) examines the existing and future impact of various modes of traffic on the road and footpath networks in Gisborne.

Following public consultation in late 2016, Council approved the study in February 2017 for use as a reference document for future infrastructure planning investigations relating to traffic and transport within the Gisborne township.
