This is to accommodate significant growth over the next 10-20 years.
Auckland Council is preparing structure plans for these two areas. Public feedback is now being sought, on the opportunities and constraints for housing and business development.
Structure planning is the first step in considering how and when Future Urban zoned land should be made available for urban development.
Chair of the Franklin Local Board, Angela Fulljames is encouraging locals to get involved in the process.
“People who live in Franklin understand growth is coming, which can pose challenges. But when it is planned well this can deliver lifestyle opportunities and better amenities, therefore I urge people to have input early and be part of the concept stage,” she said.
Feedback opened on Monday 25 September and closes on 20 October. Visit www.shapeauckland.co.nz for meeting dates and venues.
