Aotea Square plan im­proved

Central Leader - - News -

More than 1000 sub­mis­sions have been re­ceived on the pro­posed up­grade of Aotea Square.

Draft de­signs for the $25 mil­lion project were re­leased by the Auck­land City Coun­cil last month.

The coun­cil’s ur­ban de­sign panel, who were crit­i­cal of an ear­lier draft, have con­sid­ered the latest plan.

The panel say their com­ments have been well-ad­dressed and the plan is a good frame­work for more de­tailed de­sign.

Mem­bers also strongly rec­om­mended a groundlevel wa­ter fea­ture, such as a se­ries of foun­tain jets.

Feed­back from the pub­lic will be re­ported to the arts, cul­ture and re­cre­ation com­mit­tee meet­ing on Au­gust 27.
