Let 'The Landing' commence

Let 'The Landing' commence

Auckland City Council's Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee today endorsed a revised concept plan for The Landing that aims to give better public access to the waterfront and improved facilities for boaties.

The redevelopment has been split into three stages. This will ensure that the stage one work is co-ordinated with the marina development activity currently underway and should deliver some cost savings to council while at the same time minimising disruption to the users of The Landing.

These revisions relate only to the first two stages of development. The first will include: the entrance, underground servicing, and the hardstand office. Stage two includes the hardstand area, boat storage and the launching ramp.

The third stage of development includes the multi-purpose and small boats facilities. The concept plans for this area are still to be finalised and further consultation and workshops with interested parties will take place from the middle of next year.

Stages one and two costs are estimated at $4 million, funding already committed by Council for this work.

"It is exciting to see this project get underway. The Landing is a playground for watersports enthusiasts and this work will help open up the area for them and create better access to the waterfront for all users," says Councillor Penny Sefuiva, chairperson of the Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee.

Final designs for these works are being advanced so that construction can begin early next year.
