Last chance for res­i­dents to have their say

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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.
