Ideas sought for huge Westgate revamp
Auckland residents can now have their say on the development of two new community facilities in the city's growth area of Westgate.
The suburb, in the city's north west, is undergoing a rapid transformation as around 3000 new homes and two schools are built to create a new community.
Work has already begun on a new library in the town centre and is expected to be completed by 2014. Once finished the existing library in Don Buck Rd will relocate with the space becoming available for community use.
Members of the public can make submissions on the future use of the Don Buck Rd space, and can do the same for the planned multi-million-dollar Westgate Community Centre.
"We couldn't be more excited about the transformation of Auckland's North West and two new community facilities at Westgate, part of our Long-term Plan, are the icing on the cake," Henderson-Massey Local Board chairwoman Vanessa Neeson said.
"This is a great opportunity to ensure the community is well taken care of for the next 30 years and I hope as many people as possible make submissions."
Feedback forms are available at various locations including the Massey Library and the council's Huapai Service Centre.
People can also have their say online by filling out the survey at www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/hendersonmassey.
