Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board has prioritised the redevelopment of Taniwha Reserve in Glen Innes and is seeking feedback on a draft plan for the reserve.
The plan includes moves to improve water quality and wildlife habitat, create community facilities such as walkways and cycleways, and enhance user experience and the natural character of the landscape.
Taniwha Reserve is currently underutilised and has potential to be improved to increase use and enjoyment of the space.
The key objectives for this reserve are:
- to improve water quality in Omaru Creek
- to improve stormwater capacity and management
- to improve ecological habitat and biodiversity through riparian planting
- to improve safety and surveillance by opening up street frontages, improving sightlines through the reserve and through the addition of lighting
- to improve connectivity by providing pedestrian and cycling routes connecting the reserve to adjacent neighbourhoods
- to improve general amenity values, celebrate heritage and culture and help create a sense of place.
Visit the Have Your Say online consultation website 31 October 2018 to 28 November 2018 to give your thoughts on the plan.
A public consultation open day will be held on Saturday 10 November, 1pm-4pm, at Grace International Church, 77 Line Rd, Glen Innes, Auckland 1072.
