Have Your Say: Manurewa, Takanini and Papakura Area Plan

Help shape your community over the next decade


This one is one to watch through to May as it seems to be a moving fest of informal and formal consultation for the Manurewa, Takanini and Papakura (Integrated) Area Plan.

None-the-less if you live or work in the area defined by the map below I highly recommend sending in your feedback now and when the formal engagement starts April.

Auckland Council is developing an Integrated Area Plan for the Great South Road corridor that will present a 30 year vision for the future of the area, and the three key centres.

The Manurewa, Takanini, Papakura Spatial Priority Area (SPA) is one of 10 SPAs committed to in Auckland Council’s Long-term Plan.

It will set out a 10 year action and implementation plan for targeted projects that will work towards that vision.

The Plans and Places team are still early on in the process, they have reviewed previous comments and have prepared some concept designs – you can view these below:

The team will be at various local events over the summer to talk to communities more, before preparing a draft plan and engaging formally in April 2017 to seek further feedback.

The final plan will be presented to Councillors in July/August 2017.

January-February 2017: Summer events and awareness raising
February-March 2017: Prepare the draft plan
April 2017: Engagement period
May-July 2017: Analysing feedback, reporting back, finalising the Area Plan
August 2017: Adoption of final Area Plan

I will post again on this in April when the formal engagement starts. I participated in the Otara-Papatoetoe Area Plan (that included Manukau) and was not impressed with the final results of that round of engagement (especially as that Area Plan like the Auckland Plan are both now out of date). So I do urge caution and make sure you convey your thoughts to the respective Local Boards and the Councillors.

Manurewa-Papakura is one of the ten spatial priority areas targeted for growth and investment (Manukau is another). We need to get the Area Plan right first time for carrying our communities forward.
