De­vel­op­ers bank­ing on pub­lic sub­mis­sions

Central Leader - - News -

Your ideas are wanted on how to trans­form Auck­land’s water­front.

Sea+City, the com­pany manag­ing re­de­vel­op­ment of Wyn­yard Quar­ter, the for­mer tank farm site, has set up an on­line ideas bank.

Auck­lan­ders can sub­mit ideas or pho­to­graphs of top water­front de­signs from over­seas.

Project di­rec­tor John Dalzell says the de­sign is flex­i­ble enough to al­low good ideas to be in­cor­po­rated.

“The ideas bank gives peo­ple an­other op­por­tu­nity to tell us what they would like to see at Wyn­yard Quar­ter, fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tion about the project al­ready.”

Mr Dalzell says there’s no guar­an­tee that sub­mit­ted ideas will be im­ple­mented.

And at this stage, there’s no plans for the sub­mis­sions to be dis­played on the web­site.

But each will be con­sid­ered by a mem­ber of the de­sign team.

Pub­lic sub­mis­sions have al­ready led to de­sign changes for the 29hectare site.

More open space, room for host­ing marine events and more land for marine in­dus­tries will be in­cluded.

Shops, apart­ments, restau­rants, offices, a head­land park and marine and fish­ing in­dus­try ar­eas are planned.

The 25-year project is funded by Auck­land Re­gional Hold­ings and Auck­land City Coun­cil.

Hear­ings have been held this year by both city and re­gional coun­cils to con­sider district and coastal plan changes to al­low the de­vel­op­ment.
