The Weona-Westmere Walkway

Redevelopment of the Pioneer Women’s and Ellen Melville Hall as a city centre community hub, continuing the Waipapa Stream restoration and delivering the Weona-Westmere Walkway are some of the key Waitematā Local Board projects being funded as a result of public feedback on Auckland Council’s 10year budget.

“We are confident the initiatives that we plan to deliver and advocate for in 2015/2016 will contribute to a better, more people-friendly and liveable Auckland,” says Waitematā Local Board Chair Shale Chambers.

“The feedback on the council’s 10year budget confirmed that our priorities should continue to focus on high-quality urban design, protecting heritage, advocating for transport improvements and looking after the environment.”

In addition, there are some exciting new initiatives being funded this year, including:

  • streetscape improvements to Newmarket laneways
  • re-establishment of the Fukuoka Friendship Garden at Western Springs
  • the Western Springs native bush regeneration plan.
