Auckland Council to publish overview of city centre and waterfront developments
Auckland Council today confirmed that it will publish an overview of key city centre and waterfront developments, to give the public and decision-makers a clear picture of the programme of work underway to transform Auckland’s CBD.
Councillors received an update today on planning and project implementation for the city centre and waterfront.
Deputy Mayor and Development Committee Chair Penny Hulse said: “As part of delivery of the Auckland Plan, there is significant work underway to transform Auckland’s city centre and waterfront. This includes work to improve our public spaces, enhance pedestrian access and transform the retail experience.
“Auckland Council is guiding the overall work programme through the Auckland Development Committee. Over the past six months in particular, we have worked closely with the agencies to bring together a clear overview and guide progress as we move into the delivery phase.
“As we move through this work we will be seeking input from Aucklanders on any key decisions or developments.”
Penny Hulse also confirmed that the future vision for Queens Wharf will include public consultation. “The Wharf is jointly owned by the Government and Waterfront Auckland and will remain in public ownership."
The overview of projects will be published in August.
