Liaison group established Henderson development

Liaison group established for Henderson developments

Waitakere City Council has set-up a liaison group in Henderson to help improve communication and problem-solving while the new Waitakere City Library and UNITEC Campus are being built in the open space between Ratanui Street and Trading Place, Henderson.

The liaison group will comprise elected members, Council staff, architects and representatives of affected businesses.

The Council’s City Development Committee decided on the liaison group to formalise communication with Henderson business people, particularly to talk about possible impacts on nearby businesses during construction.

A deputation to the Committee, led by Henderson businessman, Dean Thomson, presented issues to be dealt with through this process.

Deputy Mayor and City Development Committee chair, Carolynne Stone, says the liaison group will provide a number of benefits.

“These projects will have a major impact on the local business community. Therefore, it is important that during the development of the library, UNITEC and Civic Centre sites, there is a managed process by which the local business community can contribute ideas or successfully raise concerns in a timely manner,” Cr Stone says.

The Council’s Director of Corporate and Civic Services, Ross McLeod, reassured Mr Thomson that current plans were still very much in a preliminary stage and the issues raised by the delegation could be taken into account, during the design process.

“A win-win situation is the best possible outcome and we are committed to achieving that by working with the business community,” Mr McLeod says.
