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.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
