Groups seeking new way forward with PENLINK
From Auckland Council
A new Penlink business case is the way forward
Members of the business community and Hibiscus and Bays Local Board met with Michael Barnett, Chief Executive of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, last week to discuss a way forward for Penlink.
The meeting was very positive and it was agreed that building Penlink as soon as possible is vital for Whangapāraoa Peninsula, Silverdale and the wider public. Penlink has the potential to improve transport connections and unlock investment. This will make it possible to develop employment land in and around Silverdale and Whangapāraoa Peninsula to increase employment and opportunities for local people.
A working party with representatives from local businesses, the local board and Chamber of Commerce will now be set up. The group’s purpose is to fund and develop a new joint business case that will reflect the high growth taking place on the Whangapāraoa Peninsula, Silverdale and surrounding areas.
