Views sought on plans for K’Road and Newton

Views sought on plans for K’Road and Newton


Waitematā Local Board wants your views on plans that will guide the future of the Karangahape Road and Newton areas.

The Draft Karangahape Road Plan and Draft Newton Plan, open for consultation until Wednesday 14 May, provide a strategy and outline proposed actions and projects to transform these areas over the next 30 years.

The plans seek to take advantage of the anticipated growth the proposed City Rail Link stations will bring, while enhancing the existing character, heritage and vitality of the areas. They will also look at how the business and residential environments can be developed and improved.

Waitematā Local Board Chair Shale Chambers says the plans are a significant step forward in planning the future of the city fringe.

“K’Road and Newton are some of Auckland’s most vibrant and exciting areas. We have a unique opportunity to influence how they will evolve for future generations to enjoy, especially with the benefits the proposed City Rail Link stations will bring.

“The plans are a starting point for discussions and we encourage you to come along to a drop-in session or go online and tell us what you think.”

Feedback will be considered before the plans are adopted by the board, expected to be in July 2014.

For copies of the plans and to provide feedback online, visit www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/haveyoursay. and click on current consultations. Copies are also available from the local board office at Level 2, 35 Graham Street, Auckland Central, or by phoning 09 365 3647.

Gordon Campbell:
On National’s Electorate Deals

For all the talk yesterday from Prime Minister John Key about National being transparent about its electorate deals in Epsom and Ohariu, that transparency is entirely front-loaded.

Yes, we know a lot about how Act and United Future are going to get into Parliament, but we know nothing at all about the policy concessions lying in wait in their coalition agreements afterwards.

The rorting of MMP is not so much in the manner by which these sham parties get into Parliament – it is in the secretive way their pet policies are foisted on the electorate once they’re there. More>>
