Initiative

Why is it a priority?

Advocating to

Henderson to be a strategic development area

Henderson presents an opportunity to showcase transit oriented urban regeneration in an area where all the infrastructure is already in place, the community supports apartment type growth and there is market interest. Auckland Council has multiple land holdings in Henderson which provides opportunities to facilitate exemplar urban redevelopment and the PPP model (Urban Living transformational shift).

It is encouraging that Panuku Development Auckland (PDA) has identified Henderson as a priority area; the board looks forward to developing its relationship with PDA to progress its vision for Henderson.

The governing body

Westgate strategic land purchase for recreation purposes

A city the size of Whanganui is forecast at Westgate and community feedback supports this growth, so long as recreational and community facilities are provided. Purchasing land now will result in cost savings compared to the cost of purchasing the same land once development has taken place.  The land purchase supports the transformational shift of radically improving the quality of urban living.

A priority for the facilities planning should be a swimming pool to complement the West Wave aquatic facility and AUT millennium in Albany. West Wave is already at capacity and the consequent effect is increased cost of continually maintaining and upgrading the facility

The governing body

Transport planning in response to growth in the North West

Transport planning in the northwest to support special housing areas and growth in general needs to take an integrated approach. That means giving equal emphasis to public transport infrastructure, including a dedicated northwest busway and future use of the existing rail line beside State Highway 16.
