Expressions of Interest – Vallance Cottage land

The Vincent Community Board invites expressions of interest for the future use of approximately 1000m2 of Recreational Reserve land surrounding the historic Vallance Cottage in Alexandra.

The Vallance Cottage working group is looking at ways to utilise the 19th century cottage in the future to make it more sustainable.  It has developed the concept of leasing the surrounding reserve land for a non-permanent commercial business that would be compatible to the cottage. For example, but not restricted to, a mobile coffee/food vendor, retail shop or artist in a portacom.

This business will receive the benefit of the visitor attraction of Vallance Cottage, which is in very close proximity to the Otago Central Rail Trail, together with space for alfresco dining and parking, a separate power connection, and access a new accessible toilet.

As the leased land is on Recreation Reserve with an underlying Rural Zone under the District Plan, any lease would be subject to a public notification process.

For more information please read the information document below or contact Christina Martin on 440 0601 or  Note the period for EOIs has been extended.
