Current stage of Camp Restoration
The Trust has worked with heritage, engineer, architect and visitor consultants on the planning and design work, required for the restoration of existing buildings and site development of the Lawrence Chinese Camp. The site will used for education and cultural experiences for visitors with a museum, gardens, memorials and virtual re-creation of the settlement.
The final design stage is being worked through with our resource consent documents currently being reviewed by Heritage New Zealand before council consent application. Building consent will closely follow.
Considerable funding has been raised to get thus far. Buy-a-Brick will make it possible to do the building work.
Please refer to our Buy a Brick Fundraising Campaign document on our DEVELOPMENT page for more details of the restoration progress
