Wa­ter­front plans

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­land Coun­cil has voted in sup­port of a con­tro­ver­sial plan to de­velop the city’s wharves in­clud­ing build­ing a new cruise ship ter­mi­nal. The Auck­land Devel­op­ment Com­mit­tee has asked staff to do more de­tailed work on the Cen­tral Wharves Strat­egy ( Auck­land City Har­bour News, Fe­bru­ary 13). The strat­egy would open up more of the wa­ter­front for public spa­ces, re­de­velop the ferry ter­mi­nal and build a cruise ship ter­mi­nal ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing larger cruise lin­ers. How­ever a new cruise ship fa­cil­ity on Cap­tain Cook Wharf would re­quire the coun­cil-owned Ports of Auck­land to find space else­where. The City Cen­tre In­te­gra­tion group is lead­ing the wharves strat­egy. A spokesman says Queens Wharf will be in­ves­ti­gated as fu­ture public space.
