AvON Living Portfolio: Proposals, Projects, Plans & Principles.  

What is the AvON Living Portfolio?

The AvON Living Portfolio is a continually evolving repository of:

  • all the different project proposals (that we are aware of)  - you can select and view any of the proposals from the list on the left, many will be in draft concept form and will be updated from time to time; 
  • spatial plans of how they might be integrated - you can view our Interactive Map or view Eastern Vision's Map of Community Aspirations;
  • generic principles that should underly and inform all proposals eg Biodiversity Strategy.

Most of the proposals listed here are being developed within the broader AvON network, the AvON Strategic Steering Group (SSG) is often just a collaborative partner or observer within the autonomous project team.  

Many of these ideas, principles and plans were covered in the 2015 CTV Series "Eyes East": this 7-part series is still available to view on-line and your feedback can still be added to the EVO::SPACE website (see below).

Please note that because AvON SSG does not lead the majority of these projects, not all information is available on this website - some project and plan infomation developed by third parties may not be in the public domain for a number of reasons eg commercial sensitivity. AvON SSG will continue to strongly advocate for transparency and openess with regard to this information where and when possible.


However AvON SSG does actively co-lead one specific project with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu: 

The Mahinga Kai Project - the Mahinga Kai Exemplar is a sub-project of this.

We view the Mahinga Kai Project as fundamental to our vision as it provides for the restoration of the core green and blue 'infrastructure' of the ecological reserve and multi-purpose river park.

EVO::SPACE 

Many of the proposals for the Avon River residential red zone are also listed on EVO::SPACE where you are free to comment on them as an individual or part of a group.  This online community feedback resource is managed by Eastern Vision, a partner group of community leaders who want to help communities create a big-picture plan for the whole of the east .  

In 2014 an initial Analysis of Community Feedback was published and is avaialble here.  A Map of Community Aspirations was derived from this analysis and can be viewed here and details of the proposals listed are available here.  Note some of these propsoals lie outside the residential red zone and/or are not compatible with the AvON vision.
