Auckland City continues heritage protection efforts

Auckland City Council's commitment to protecting the city's heritage architecture is continuing with a proposal to schedule more buildings and objects in the district plan.

Proposed plan change 194 to the isthmus section of the district plan will schedule nine buildings or objects as category B items.

"The addition of these items to the district plan illustrates Auckland City's continuing efforts to ensure important buildings and objects are preserved for future generations," says Councillor Christine Caughey, chairperson of Auckland City's Environment, Heritage and Urban Form Committee.

"These items are of significant heritage value to the city and we are looking forward to more items such as these being protected as heritage assessment continues," says Councillor Glenda Fryer, chairperson of the Planning and Regulatory Committee.

The buildings or objects proposed for protection are:

St Aidan's Church, 3-9 Ascot Avenue, Remuera

Green Bay Mission Hall, 504-506 Blockhouse Bay Road, Blockhouse Bay

Blockhouse Bay sea wall, 69-79 Endeavour Street, Blockhouse Bay

St Josephs' Catholic Church and Bell Tower, 470 Great North Road, Grey Lynn

the tram shelter, on the corner of Great North and Stadium Roads, Western Springs

Cucksey's building, 428-434 Mt Eden Road, Mt Eden

Ambury's Dairy (currently housing Circus Circus café), 447 Mt Eden Road, Mt Eden

war memorial obelisks, gates and stone walls, at the entrance to Auckland Normal Intermediate School, Poronui Street, Mt Eden

memorial gates at Mt Eden Normal Primary School, 73 Valley Road, Mt Eden.


By scheduling these items as category B items they are given district plan protection against removal, additions or alterations to the building without consent.

At its meeting in June 2004, Auckland City Council budgeted $100,000 for a review of heritage buildings on the isthmus to be undertaken in the 2004/2005 financial year. Public submissions were called for from August to December 2004, with information on numerous buildings received for consideration. While assessment of all the information received is still underway, a number of sites, such as the ones currently proposed for scheduling, have already been considered.

The proposed plan change is available for viewing on www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/isthmusplan or at:

Level 11, Civic Administration Building: 1 Greys Avenue, central city

Blockhouse Bay community library, 578 Blockhouse Bay Road, Blockhouse Bay

Epsom community library, 195 Manukau Road, Epsom

Grey Lynn community library, 474 Great North Road, Grey Lynn

Remuera community library, 429 Remuera Road, Remuera

the reference section, Central City library, 44-46 Lorne Street, central city.


Submissions close on Monday 19 December.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
