Council gives residents a glimpse of the future at open day

Manukau City Council is holding an open day on Saturday, 9 July at the Flat Bush School Hall, corner of Murphy’s and Flat Bush School Roads from 9.30am to 4.30pm to show the public the latest information about the development of the new town centre at Flat Bush, and Barry Curtis Park.

The Council owns 18 hectares of land that will become the town centre, on either side of Ormiston Road. This land sits on the eastern edge of a further 94 hectares that is being developed into a new premier park for the city, Barry Curtis Park.

Although much of the Flat Bush area is little more than grassland at the moment, within 12 years it is expected to become home to 40,000 people.

“It is an extremely rare opportunity these days to create an entirely new town centre, so this is a very exciting project for Manukau,” says Bruce Harland, manager of design and development at Flat Bush.

The town centre area will house a mix of commercial, retail, residential and community uses and is intended to form the heart of the emerging Flat Bush Community. At the open day people can view plans and concepts for the town centre and Barry Curtis Park, and speak with Council representatives about the project.
