Glen Innes looks to the future

Auckland City will be launching its ‘Glen Innes into the future’ document at the Tamaki Community Board meeting tonight, Tuesday 23 November.

The document sets out a new strategic direction for managing growth and change within Glen Innes and a vision to create a safe and attractive place to live, work and invest.

The strategy is the result of extensive consultation with the Glen Innes community and was adopted by council in July 2004.

The document will be formally presented to the Tamaki Community Board tonight during its first business meeting since the October elections.

Glen Innes takes its name from William Innes Taylor who arrived in New Zealand in 1843 and farmed there for 50 years. The suburb of Glen Innes was initially developed as a state housing area in the 1950s and features Auckland’s first comprehensively planned town centre.

“While the area has served its residents well over the years, it continues to grow and change,” says Dr Bruce Hucker, deputy mayor and chair of the Urban Strategy and Governance Committee.

“Between 1991 and 2001 the population of Glen Innes increased by 1,440 people, with an additional 231 dwellings being built in the area. Over the next 20 years the population is expected to grow by approximately another 3,000 people or 900 homes.

“The challenge is to embrace this growth and change in such a way that those features of Glen Innes that are valued by the community are enhanced.”

The outcomes identified in the ‘Glen Innes into the future’ document are: an attractive, safe and vibrant town centre enhancing local employment opportunities a variety of housing types to meet the needs of a diverse and growing community improving public transport facilities and services to make it easier to get around enhancing pedestrian and traffic safety easy and safe access to community facilities and open spaces, which meet local needs strengthening community identity and improving public safety protecting and enhancing the natural environment.

The document looks more closely into the tools that will be used to deliver on its vision and outcomes. Copies of the document will be available at the community board meeting and the Glen Innes community library.

Tamaki Community Board extraordinary meeting: Maungarei Room, 7-13 Pilkington Road, Panmure 23 November 2004, 6pm
