Green Spaces - 2016
Our special project this year is what we call Green Spaces advocating and contributing to walking trails and open spaces in the local community. We live in a unique and picturesque part of Auckland with a coastal lifestyle that most New Zealanders can only dream of. This lifestyle incorporates a unique mix of housing areas, farmland, beaches, retail/commercial, lifestyle blocks, along with stunning scenery and coastline.
The current influx of new residents and the burgeoning commercial and residential construction work evokes a variety of contrasting views from us as locals. Regardless of our individual views on the current growth in our district, we cannot ever hope to halt the development. The new Auckland Council Unitary Plan provides both challenges and opportunities.
As you can see from the information below we are involved with local groups and the Auckland Council Franklin board sketching out trails and walk ways for the future, which will form a part of the long term plans and influence development.
Separately, with the National Walking Access group, we are working with local landowners to grant walking access to some of the most beautiful parts of the coast, currently off bounds to the rest of the community. Tree planting and coastal erosion projects are other areas we are involved in.
