The Devonport-Takapuna Local Board will decide on Tuesday whether to lease the campground on the Takapuna Beach reserve and, assuming it goes with majority public input & a commissioner’s recommendation, should have an operator chosen by the end of March 2018.
Independent commissioner Gerald Rowan heard submissions on the campground proposal in July and his recommendations are up for debate at the local board meeting.
Council property organisation Panuku Development Auckland would start the process toward a new lease by holding a workshop for the board on the expressions of interest process and would run a tender through November.
Panuku would analyse returns over Christmas, shortlist potential operators and run a request for proposal process to the end of February. Panuku would then negotiate & award the lease.
