Last chance for residents to have their say
the Three Kings town centre, improve connections between people and places, encourage high qaulity residential development and develop a sense of identity.
Deputy chair Harry Doig says the plan is not perfect. ‘‘There are changes that need to be made. People might have suggestions that we haven’t even thought of – the board is open to anything,’’ Doig says.
The plan is broken into two phases.
The first has a particular focus on the redevelopment of the quarry site while stage two looks at the town centre, local businesses and council reserve land.
Doig says the Three Kings quarry gets a lot of attention but it is important that the town centre isn’t forgotten.
‘‘We want the town centre to be something that is interesting and vibrant.
‘‘ It should be a destination that people actually want to go to, not something covered in carparks that is just a service centre,’’ he says.
The final Three Kings Plan will be used to inform decisions made on submissions to the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan regarding the Three Kings area.
