Suburban Centre Revitalisation

Suburban revitalisation is the process how to elaborate of all areas in corporation of the Architecture, Landscape architecture, urban planning, and civil and municipal engineering. Urban design is about making connections between human and places, and the form of how to change the future environment in sustainable manners. 

In this essay I will discuss 3 areas of Suburban centre revitalization.

1) The Porirua City Centre Revitalisation: 

In year 2013 the group of Economic and development of Porirua City Council, their make a program project called “ Porirua City Centre Revitalisation”. “The project aim is all about supporting the growth by making a positive change to Porirua’s City”. The strategy of this project is how to get more investment and business opportunities for Porirua City. Porirua City Council is investing of $18 million NZ dollars over 10 years to get the project started or done.

The City Centre Revitalisation project, they have focused in four areas or quarters within the city center. Please see the map below. And each area is having different identity and subscription. The Revitalisation project will bring offering life to all residential and visitors to make the most of what Porirua’s have to offers. 

1,) The Streamside Quarter – This area, Porirua City Council want to be transform for relaxing area, especially after work people can go here. And this is going to be a heart of the Porirua city.

2.) The market Quarter - This area includes the space under canopies and Cobham Court. Wishing to transform with a new life as a central park with a great plank quality shopping area includes weekend market business. 

3.) The Leisure Quarter – this area needed to transform and be focus as a past time and relaxation for the public people and leading to arts activities of the city. Also need more events attractions pass to Te Rauparaha Arena and Pataka, wishing to have connection for pedestrian access from the centre and to the harbour.

4.) The Harbour Quarter – This area is a Porirua showcase of the natural landscape. Want to develop for more opportunities for the investor, also can provide a better connection to the city centre and refresh the harbor view situation.

 The good strategies for the four area revitalisation of Porirua it’s very brilliant. According to Mr. Chris Lipscombe. The target of Porirua City is about Strategy and Policies. Mean in the mixture of operating expenditure (e.g. rate, electricity and more) and Capital in venture (e.g. people buy a house and more).
Because of these good ideas, now Porirua is facing of the new coming revitalsation of the four quarter areas
And hope these can be bring a new life and vibrant for the Porirua suburban.

2) Durham City Centre - Millennium Project:

The aim revitalisation of Durham A690: 

In year 1980 the Durham City A690  Council was organize the exhibition of the project and display the key strategies of the city with involvement of several organization, local businesses and residents to support the project. Nothing like many redevelopments, this determined of the project is to give to the community rather than commercial rise alone.

The Durham City project intention is to create the division on the ridge and new routes going to riverfront and park beside the River Wear. The area of the peninsula need to relink to the historic Centre, with safe and convenient for the pedestrian routes. The revitalization of the city is more focus to the tourist, give them space such as car park for they can stay long and also to calming the traffic and more improvement of the pedestrian.

Because of Durham revitalisation, now the new routes are accessible for the public activities and the suburb has a new life and vibrant identity and the traffic as well is calming.

The Norrebrogade Revitalisation of an inner city main street in Copenhagen Denmark

The Norrenbrogade in Denmark is a main street of the city that with two functional public activities. 

First - The Street is a major of commercial centre with over three hundred shops, coffees and restaurant.
Second - is a major traffic of the city. Every twenty four hours seventeen thousand cars driving along 
Norrenbrogade comparing to thirty three thousand cyclist, thirty thousand bus passenger and twenty-seven thousand pedestrian spending their time there.

In year 2010. The Norrenbrogade City Council is decided to solve the problem and redevelop the plan of the revitalization of Norrenbrogade. The aim of project is to make the surrounding street and space is more functional to meet the need various parties with the priority on walking and cycling and public transport.

3.) The Norrenbrogade cyclist space is demanding space, because of the growth of the cycling population, but the plan of Norrenbrogade is according to their budget allocation. 

The year 2010 the Norrenbrogade finalise the plan to reduce the fifty percent of traffic for free for the pedestrian and cyclist, and busses with the creation of the only bus lane for better facilities for pedestrian to sit and have time to the area. Among the other things the permanent green light for the cycling was been stayed for riding their bike in a slow speed. During to this implementation, car reduces traffic in individual’s routes in Norrenbrogade in between of the 30 to 80%. Because of Norrenbrogade revitalisation, 67% of public traffic was been reduce and the busses and car destination are move quickly to their destination.

 Because of the Norrebrogade revitalisation the traffic was reduce dramatically and give a new way of  life and vibrant to their environment, also its attracting for the community to stay more longer in the areas such as coffee shop and shopping area for relaxing and walking around the area of Norrenbrogade. 

Conclusion:

According to my three research. I have one conclusion to three of them, Because I thought Suburban revitalization there is a one framework process how to work the revitalization into area, such as using the Policies and strategy, I thought these technic are applied to all suburban revitalisation. The only I see of the differences are how they applied they building code, district plan, rules and regulation and policies. Then most focus of the suburban revitalization is to sustain the needs of the community to give life and energy to the environment

The Suburban revitalization is a vision of the future life and energy, providing new attractions for community to enjoy, also to give more opportunity to all businesses to arise, and also to seduce more investor to invest their business into the area of the suburban including houses development.

Because of the revitalization strategy, dead suburban can be alive again goanna have a full of energy and life. According to our research in Porirua, Porirua population is decrease of 9.17% of population. So might be because of their new revitalization project, Porirua population can be increase again also the investment opportunity could be will be increase as well. The perception of the Porirua revitalization project is a big impact to the Porirua’s suburban and environment in the future coming soon. And this is the same situation of Norrenbrogade and Durham, but just in a differences is the implementation only and what is project plan of revitalization strategy.
