Attachment B – Business Case for Ponsonby Park
Several design options were presented for consideration as part of the preparatory investigative work by the Project Control Steering Group. However, not all options were progressed through to the final public consultation that was held at the end of 2019.
In the final public consultation, the three options presented were titled;
Option 1 – Re-mediate + Retain
Option 2 – Re-mediate + Adapt
Option 3 – New Build
In earlier iterations, Option 3 had also been labelled Option C and Option 5.
Confused? Don’t be. Option 3, Option 5 and Option C are all the SAME design concept.
