News: Master plan begins to take shape
The University’s 20 year Campus Master Plan is beginning to take shape, with first drafts of some sections being presented to the Steering Committee last month. The Plan, which was initiated in March, is likely to take a whole year to prepare and will guide the development of the University campus over the next two decades.
International Master Planners, DEGW, have visited each of Otago’s campuses, and have met with interested parties ranging from University staff, students and executives to the City and Regional Councils to get the plan to this point. They spent the first part of last month in Dunedin intensively workshopping design options for the campus.
Manager of Strategy and Planning for Property Services Sue Larkins says making the Water of Leith a corridor through the Dunedin campus remains a strong element of the Plan, as does developing strategies for accommodating long-term academic and residential growth.
It is hoped a final draft of the Master Plan will be presented to the University Council in March next year.
