Have your say on Henderson town centre initiatives

30 April 2018


Auckland Transport (AT), Henderson-Massey Local Board, Auckland Council and Panuku Development Auckland are working together on initiatives in the Henderson area to make it more accessible and a better place for everyone to live, work and play.

Alongside council organisations, AT is asking for your feedback on what it can do to deliver better walking and cycling connections, enabling Henderson to become more vibrant and a more attractive place for everyone.

“We want to unlock every option for people to travel around the area, and promote the best projects to serve local business. It will be led by you, and directed in partnership with the strong local business association providing you a collective voice,” says Shane Henderson, Chair of Henderson-Massey Local Board.

“It’s an exciting time to grow the greater Henderson area together, make it more attractive and easier to get around.”

AT’s Walking, Cycling and Road Safety Manager Kathryn King says we are seeking feedback from the local community, residents and businesses on how to make Henderson into a more attractive and a vibrant place for people.

“We want to know what is important to people and what would they like to see in Henderson, and also how they would like to get around it more easily. To support the area’s growth, we want to give people more travel options to get to work, school and local attractions.

“Henderson is a busy transport interchange, which will become even busier after completion of the City Rail Link. We want to improve walking and cycling links to the train station and the town centre from surrounding suburbs to make it easier for local trips and longer trips to other parts of Auckland.”

Planned walking and cycling improvements will support the wider regeneration plan for Henderson, which is being led by the city’s regeneration agency, Panuku Development Auckland.

Panuku Director, Corporate Affairs Angelika Cutler says the work Panuku is doing in Henderson with AT and other groups will make it easier and safer to get around the town centre on foot and by bike which will help to attract people to new homes that will be built in Auckland's "urban eco-centre" over the next 10 years.

All addresses within the 3km radius of Henderson train station and town centre will receive a copy of the consultation brochure in their letter boxes. People can complete the freepost feedback form and return it to us by Wednesday 23 May 2018.

Alternatively, you can provide feedback online at AT.govt.nz/haveyoursay.

We are also holding a drop in session on Thursday 3 May from 4pm-7pm at the Waitakere Central Library, 3 Ratanui St, Henderson. You can meet our project team and give us your feedback.

This is an early phase public consultation to help us understand community needs in the Henderson area. We want to identify and improve the key routes that people want to use when cycling or walking between train station, town centre and local community facilities. We will seek further community feedback as projects get underway.

The feedback will help to inform current and future projects that benefit the wider Henderson area over the next 10 years.

Crowdsale And Crowdfunding Campaign: Help Create The Future Of Independent News

Two weeks to go! The Scoop 3.0 plan aims to create NZ’s first community-owned, distributed news and media intelligence ecosystem in 2019.
