Big Ideas lead to vision to Revive Roskill Town Centre


"We have heard the frustrations and ideas from our local community, and now we've distilled it all into a vision to set the Mt Roskill Town Centre back on the right track," says Bobby Shen, Roskill Community Voice candidate for the Puketāpapa Local Board.

Today Roskill Community Voice, with City Vision candidate for ward councillor Mark Graham and Member of Parliament for Mt Roskill Michael Wood, launched their vision to Revive Roskill Town Centre.

The booklet lays out four focus areas and specific policy ideas to address each:
- Supporting a thriving area for local businesses
- Developing a place that attracts our vibrant and diverse community
- Securing the transport future of Dominion Road
- Creating a safe and flourishing Roskill Town Centre

"It was so encouraging to see the many locals participate in our Big Ideas for Mt Roskill Town Centre discussion. We had over 100 people at the public meeting and over 400 ideas collected online, face to face, and through postcards. It shows just how much the folks here really care about Roskill Town Centre and want to make it a place for people again," says Mark Graham, City Vision candidate for Albert-Eden-Puketapapa.

Printed copies of the Revive Roskill Town Centre vision are being given out to all the businesses in the area this week, and the online version is available now at this link on the Roskill Community Voice website.

"Getting all these ideas on paper and presenting a way forward back to the community is really just the beginning of a very big job, and I'm looking forward to working together to get it done in the years to come," says Bobby Shen.

Gordon Campbell: On The Political Donations Scandals


Even paranoids have real enemies. While there has been something delusionary about the way New Zealand First has been living in denial about its donations scandal, one can sympathise with its indignation about Paula Bennett and Simon Bridges being among its chief accusers. Given that the National Party is enmeshed in a donation scandal of its own that shares the same core features, it is a bit like Al Capone being accused of wrongdoing by Bonnie and Clyde. Unfortunately, the entire country seems to be living in denial about the existence of these sort of shenanigans... More>>
