How to makeover your Town Centre
faster, at a lower cost, and with genuine community participation
You have a TOWN CENTRE that needs reinvigorating
The traditional approach starts by creating a master plan, and then consulting the community. But this often gets bogged down in endless debate, or the report ends up on a shelf gathering dust, or if anything does happen, it can take years, and the result is often disappointing.
Our approach avoids all these pitfalls.
The total process, from when you sign a contract till the makeover is complete, is usually around 12 weeks.
You are guaranteed a great TOWN CENTRE at the end of this time, not just a glossy report.
And the community, along with the businesses, will have participated intimately with the design and feel a deeps sense of pride in what they have created.

HOW IT WORKS
It took us 30 Years to develop the 7 day makeover
Turn your naysayers into doers
With the traditional master-planning approach, the naysayers and axe-grinders often sit on the sideline and throw rocks at Council. We have seen the 7 Day Makeover silence these critics and even turn some into doers.
“They say “the stories we tell is the culture we create” and the new conversations here in Westport are full of pride, hope and positivity. All thanks to 7 days.”

Up-skilling your community
The 7 Day Makeover teaches residents a new way of reinventing their town or city that does not involve endless talk-fests or generating unaffordable wish lists. The processes they learn can be repeated over and over again. Paihia in NZ has repeated the process over 20 times and totally transformed their town. We provide a Makeover Kit and a budget for the first follow-up makeover.
“It gave me a real sense of the community I live in, a feeling of having contributed to something really positive and helpful.
It was an amazing experience all around. I can’t wait to start the next phase!”
