Vision for Three Kings to be launched next week

Roskill Community Voice Media Release

8 August 2013

Vision for Three Kings to be launched next week

“Three Kings was the birthplace of local government in Mt Roskill. One hundred years later it is time for local government to step up and deliver a clear vision for the future of Three Kings, as the community faces unprecedented change”, says Roskill Community Voice candidate for the Puketapapa Local Board Julie Fairey.

“The redevelopment of Three Kings quarry into a major residential sub-division, and proposed Unitary Plan changes mean that the Three Kings of the future will be different. We say that this change needs to be guided by a strong local vision to ensure that the needs and aspirations of the Three Kings community are met”, says Roskill Community Voice candidate for the Puketapapa Local Board Harry Doig.

“We have been listening to the Three Kings community and next week will launch our Vision for Three Kings as part of an integrated policy package about Three Kings issues. Our vision will cover key issues including:

·         A plan to restore Big King, our neglected maunga.

·         Our vision for a quality quarry development with real public amenity

·         The Unitary Plan and how we ensure good community outcomes

·         Protection and promotion of Three Kings’ local heritage and character

“A key part of our vision will be an exciting new campaign to ‘Restore Big King’. An announcement about this campaign will be made at the launch event”, says Julie Fairey.

“Our ‘Vision for Three Kings’ and ‘Restore Big King’ campaign will be launched on Saturday 17 August in Three Kings. Local residents can find out about the Vision by checking www.roskillcv.org.nz, contacting us to request a copy of our ‘Vision for Three Kings’ policy booklet, or attending the launch from 3pm on Saturday 17 August. Places are limited so people need to contact us ASAP on roskillcv@gmail.com or 620-9257 to reserve a place at the launch. We are excited about our Vision for Three Kings and hope that the local community will be too”, says Harry Doig.

Gordon Campbell: On Our Unreal Optimism About The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus

At this week’s Chinese New Year celebrations, PM Jacinda Ardern was resolutely upbeat that business with China would soon bounce back to normal – better than ever, even - once the coronavirus epidemic has been brought under control. To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality. What has been very odd so far about the coronavirus episode is that global share markets – normally spooked by mere sneezes or sniffles in the world’s major economies - have continued to be fairly positive, even as the epidemic has unfolded...
