Dunedin City Council hosted a public lecture by Dr John Montgomery at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery last Friday (16 September).
Dr Montgomery provided a presentation [PDF, 5.94 MB] on the economy, culture and design of cities, building on his work in the UK and Australia. His views are particularly relevant for the development of Dunedin’s Central City Plan and Economic Development strategies.
John Montgomery is an urban planner, economist, author and managing director of Urban Cultures Ltd.
Urban Cultures consults in urban economics, city planning, urban design, arts-led urban revitalisation and managing the night-time city.

Your City Our Future (YCOF) – Update
Dunedin City Council undertook a city-wide consultation in June 2011 to identify priorities for future expenditure. The results from the consultation survey are available here: YCOF survey report July 2011
The information and feedback received from the consultation, along with the feedback from the YCOF leadership teams has been used in the development of the Council’s draft spatial plan, “Dunedin Towards 2050”, draft Central City Plan, and draft Economic Development Strategy.
Formal consultation on these documents is planned for October/November 2011.
