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.

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...
