Henderson Heritage Station’s future still to be settled
The parties involved in negotiations over the future of Henderson Heritage Station are due to meet again on 16 May to try to find a compromise about where to put the station.
Waitakere City Council has been seeking to re-site the building as it limits the bus and taxi drop off area at the planned transport interchange. The Historic Places Trust and the Auckland Regional Council are keen to retain the building where it is.
Commissioner Les Simmonds has directed the parties to reconvene to find a solution, following his reserved decision on the Council’s application to move the station to an historic cluster at Corbans’ Arts Centre.
City Development Committee Deputy Chair Councillor Linda Cooper says that she is hopeful that a compromise can be struck.
“Obviously we want to see an outcome that is agreeable to all parties, which would maintain heritage values, while allowing a fully functional modern interchange to be built,” she says
