Whanganui District Council is asking for community feedback on the concept plan for improvements to the Durie Hill lookout and surrounding area.
The concept plan for the lookout and surrounding area has been developed following a $100,000 donation from Mars Petcare earlier this year (2021) towards the upgrade. An additional funding amount of $80,000 has been set aside from year two of the council's Long-Term Plan 2021-2031 to support the project. Construction work on the lookout is expected to start from 1 July 2022.
The main idea for the Durie Hill lookout concept is to create a unique landmark that:
Site plan showing location of the new lookout
Plan of the lookout showing key features
Bird’s eye perspective of the lookout
Elevation view of the lookout
