Auckland Council says 'yes' to controversial car park development in Takapuna


 Controversial plans to redevelop a car park in Takapuna have been given the green light by Auckland Council, despite strong community opposition.
The planning committee voted 13 to eight to change the use of the car park at 40 Anzac St, despite the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board's unanimous opposition, and several councillors voicing dissent.

Green light for Panmure Regeneration Plan

A plan to revitalise Panmure that will improve transport connections to and from the town centre, reinvigorate the mainstreet and reconnect the community with its surrounding natural features has been given the green light. 

Auckland Council’s Planning Committee gave the go ahead today for the city’s regeneration agency Panuku Development Auckland to lead the refresh of Panmure town centre in partnership with the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, Auckland Council and mana whenua.

Panuku will work closely with Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC), which will deliver 7500 new homes across Tāmaki over the next 15-20 years.

Throughout the project, Panuku will also partner with Auckland Transport, which expects to begin the next phase of the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) Eastern Busway from Panmure to Pakuranga in mid-2018.

Government to work with Mayoral Housing Taskforce

The Government today committed to working with the Auckland Mayor’s Housing Taskforce aimed at ramping up the pace and scale of housing building in our largest city, Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford and Building and Construction Minister Jenny Salesa says.

The Taskforce is a multi-sector group made up of private sector housing organisations and public sector agencies. It will be a key forum for reviewing and developing housing policy to better address shortages and unaffordability in Auckland.

Phil Twyford says there is a strong overlap between the Taskforce’s objectives and the Government’s own reform projects.
