The proposed scope for a Te Atatu South centre plan and the approach to implementing it go to the Henderson-Massey Local Board for approval tomorrow.
The Heart of Te Atatu South Group & its agent, the Isthmus Group Ltd, completed survey work last year, and Auckland Council’s plans & places department has been co-ordinating preparation of the 30-year vision, and will set out a 10-year action plan.
Principal council planner David Hookway said in his report for tomorrow’s meeting that community engagement in November would lead to a plan that the local board would consider in February.
The project arose out of local community concerns expressed in a submission to the council’s 10-year budget & Auckland Plan 2050 consultation in March.
The Auckland unitary plan has nearly doubled the size of the local centre business zoning of the Te Atatu South centre, ringing it with by the residential terrace housing & apartment buildings zone & the residential mixed housing urban zone. “Considerable additional development opportunities have been enabled, reflecting the intention of the Auckland Plan development area for Te Atatu South,” Mr Hookway said.
The Auckland Plan says “access to Te Atatu South will be greatly improved by the completion of the north-western rapid transit corridor. Development in Henderson & the Te Atatu Peninsula is anticipated to encourage development opportunities in this area.” Te Atatu & Edmonton Rds, which meet at the heart of the local business centre, will feed the nearby motorway & rapid transit corridor.
Other council & local board strategies & plans for the area include walkways, trails & parks under the Henderson-Massey open space network plan 2015-25, the Whau walkway plan and the community facilities network plan August 2015.
