Panmure town centre design endorsed

Panmure town centre design endorsed

Community consultation regarding the final phase of the development of the Panmure town centre plan will start in March.

The concept design for the Panmure town centre was endorsed by the Tamaki Community Board at their February meeting. Work on the town centre development is programmed for July.

The work phase will focus on the upgrade of Queens Road, Pilkington Road and Basin View Lane. Emphasis will be on the pedestrian environment, upgrading footpaths, amenity plantings and the creation of an attractive and enjoyable environment.

Councillor Bill Christian, chairman of the Works Committee, says the work on the upgrading of the footpaths and amenity plantings is a good place to start in relation to making Panmure exciting and lively for the local shoppers and visitors to the area.

“But the really exciting work is yet to come. The concept design shows changes to the scenic linkages stretching from Mount Wellington (Maungarei) to the Panmure Lagoon. These have the potential to create a very beautiful environment that will help make Panmure a real showpiece.

“There is also work to be done in upgrading Panmure Lagoon which is a natural asset for Panmure and one of the jewels in its crown. Once these changes are complete Panmure will be a wonderful place for businesses to locate and developers to invest in,” Mr Christian says.

“Interest in Panmure is beginning to mushroom and we believe it will become another Ponsonby or Mount Eden Village.”

Two community meetings will be held to explain the final phase of the development. They will be held on 20 March 2003 at 7pm and 3 April 2003 at 7pm. Both meetings will be held at the Panmure Community Centre.
