PUB­LIC SPACE

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Goff is sup­port­ive of the lat­est plans to re­de­velop Mt Al­bert’s Cham­ber­lain Park Golf Course which would re­duce the course to nine-holes. ’’The [Al­bert-Eden] lo­cal board be­lieves it should be re­de­vel­oped and I put a lot of em­pha­sis on what the lo­cal­ly­elected peo­ple say about their neigh­bour­hood,’’ he says.

Re­muera Golf Course is an open space Goff thinks could be utilised more and opened to the pub­lic. ‘‘To be a mem­ber it means ef­fec­tively you’re being sub­sidised, ac­cord­ing to the eco­nomic re­port on it, to the tune of $12,000 per mem­ber by other Auck­land ratepay­ers and didn’t seem to me to be a fair go.’’

How­ever the golf course has a lease which ties up in 2091 mak­ing any change un­likely, Goff says.
