What do you mean by 'turning the city around' to face the river?

Currently Lower Hutt city has its back to the river. Some people might not even realise we are what's considered to be a river city. 'Turning the city around' is about creating opportunities for people to see and interact with Te Awa Kairangi Hutt River -providing not only a physical connection but an emotional one to the river.

Making the riverĀ an active part of the city

Doing this will provide multi-modal (different ways of getting around) access to, from, and across the river. It'll also create opportunities to see and interact with the river through recreation, play, leisure activities and new homes. Making the river an active part of the city will extend the natural character of the river environment into Lower Hutt city.
