Board appointed for Auckland’s most transformational project

Honourable Dame Fran Wilde will lead the board overseeing the design and construction of Auckland’s largest, most transformational project of a generation – Auckland Light Rail, which will connect hundreds of thousands of people across the city, Minister of Transport Michael Wood announced.

“Auckland Light Rail is New Zealand’s largest and most complex infrastructure project. It will bring far-reaching benefits for communities by increasing access, boosting economic growth and unlocking productivity gains across the region. It is crucial that we have a chair and board who understand the opportunity this project provides and has the experience and insight to lead the delivery of light rail for Auckland,” Michael Wood said.

“Dame Fran is a highly experienced director who has served as a Cabinet Minister, Mayor, and in senior governance roles on many significant central and local government as well as private sector boards. She is an excellent fit for the role. Her diverse experience in governance, community involvement, work with iwi, infrastructure and delivering transport and urban development outcomes will be invaluable in the role of ALR Chair.’s-most-transformational-project

The Government is upgrading New Zealand’s transport system to make it safer, greener, and more efficient  for now and future generations to come,” Michael Wood said.

Significant Timaru subdivision granted resource consent

A significant slice of undeveloped land at the south-eastern edge of Timaru could soon accommodate up to 150 houses after an application to subdivide it was given the go-ahead by the council.

Landowner Terry O’Neill has been trying to get consent to subdivide a large block of land, at Watlington, for almost 15 years.

About 3.5 hectares was rezoned from rural to residential, with O’Neill developing 13 sections on the south side in 2007.

Since then, he has been trying to get the remaining 5.78 ha rezoned to residential. Last week, the Timaru District Council granted a subdivision consent, allowing the land to be subdivided into four allotments, of which three will be amalgamated to form the subdivision.
