Plans for a new town square in Takapuna green lit
Auckland Council’s Environment and Community Committee approved Panuku’s proposal to reclassify land in central Takapuna for new open public space at a meeting on Wednesday 10 July.
The proposal put forward by Panuku outlined recommendations for a public space of approximately 3,200m² across 40 Anzac Street and 34-38 Hurstmere Road, a location that follows the preferred outcome of a public consultation in July 2018 to connect Lake and Hurstmere roads.
The decision confirms the footprint of the future public space and allows for detailed design work to move ahead.
The footprint, situated over a location favoured by the community, offers visual and physical connections to adjoining spaces such as Potters Park and Hurstmere Green, a connection of laneways, abundant sunlight, places to sit and relax and opportunities for markets and community events.
