Have your say on future of Auckland’s waterfront

Have your say on the future of Auckland’s waterfront

The Auckland Regional Council (ARC) and Auckland City Council are asking Aucklanders to provide additional input into the development of an overarching vision for Auckland’s waterfront.

Earlier this year, the two councils released a draft vision for the wider waterfront area – stretching from the Harbour Bridge in the west to Mechanics Bay in the east. Over 850 people provided valuable feedback and input at the time.

During this process a number of individuals and organisations requested the opportunity to have more involvement in the development of the vision, and that the vision include a greater level of detail than currently incorporated.

In response to those requests, the ARC and Auckland City will be holding an interactive workshop to give the public an opportunity to discuss and feed back on future options and ideas for the wider waterfront area. The workshop will build on feedback received earlier this year.

When: 6 – 8pm, Monday 5 September 2005
Where: Maritime Room, New Zealand National Maritime Museum,
Hobson Wharf, Auckland City.

To attend the workshop please rsvp to Dana Findlay, Auckland Regional Council, phone (09) 366 2000 or email dana.findlay@arc.govt.nz by Friday 26 August (rsvp is essential).

ARC Chairman, Michael Lee says that the waterfront area is one of the city’s, and the region’s greatest assets, and it is important that the overarching vision for the area takes into account the views and comments of Aucklanders who live, work and visit the area.

“I encourage people to come along to the workshop in September, and to participate in the process that will set the future direction for Auckland’s waterfront. It is important to both the ARC and Auckland City that Aucklanders feel they have a say in the development of the vision. Auckland’s waterfront after all belongs to the people,” Mr Lee says.

“All the key players are working together to ensure the final vision is something we can all be proud of – the creation of a stunning waterfront that truly links people, city and sea,” says Auckland City Mayor, Dick Hubbard.

Public feedback from the workshop will inform the final vision document which is now scheduled to be adopted by both councils in late October, and publicly released in November. It will include maps and graphics, clear principles for future development, evaluation criteria, explanations of key issues and options, including those regarding the Western Reclamation, transport, and the bulk liquid, marine and fishing industries.
