Henderson’s station may join historic cluster

Henderson’s Railway Station is poised to join a cluster of historic buildings at the Corban Estate Arts Precinct on Great North Rd, Henderson, provided it gets resource consent for the move. Application for a notified Resource Consent was made on 29 November and submissions close on 25 January.

Restoration works are planned for the old wooden building which played an integral part in Henderson's early development.

The move is supported by the Henderson Heritage Trust, says Trust Chairman Michael Joyce. “We have been trying to find a position such as the Corban Estate for the past three years, especially as the lease of the present site runs out in two years. “If Henderson Station is to have a future use in the community, it needs to go somewhere where it will be fully restored, in proximity to other buildings of the same age with reasonable public access and parking. “There is not much future for the station in its present position, now that the new era of transport is about to unfold at Henderson with the double tracking. It is continually being vandalised and marked with graffiti,” says Mr Joyce The station, built in 1912, was a central transport hub in the transformation of Henderson from a mill settlement to the centre of an agricultural and horticultural district. Auckland Regional Transport Network Limited which holds the lease on the station, is due to start double tracking on the Western Line, when funds become available (possibly before Easter).

Relocating the station is a Non-Complying Activity under Waitakere City‘s District Plan and submissions supporting or opposing the application will be received by the Council until 25 January 2005 at Private Bag 93 109, Henderson, Waitakere City.

Details of the Council’s application can be viewed at the Waitakere City Council, 6 Waipareira Ave, Henderson, at the New Lynn Service Centre, corner Totara Ave and Memorial Drive New Lynn and at all Waitakere City Libraries or by phoning Council’s Customer Services ph 839-0400.
