Pukekohe Market plan gets go ahead

Publish Date : 14 Dec 2023

A concept plan for developing the Pukekohe Market Precinct has been given the green light.

Franklin Local Board chair Angela Fulljames says a high level Unlock Pukekohe plan was endorsed in 2019 with council’s Finance and Performance Committee then approving the sale of properties within the area for urban renewal.

The key moves proposed to create the precinct are reconfiguring Roulston Street to provide more flexible space for events and markets, and similar work along Devon Lane to better cater for pedestrians. 

“A masterplan was endorsed in June this year and the Market Precinct is the flagship public project, including upgrading Roulston Street, Devon Lane, and some town square improvements,” says Fulljames.

“We have seen robust engagement with the community indicating strong support for creating a market precinct at the town square and extending to Roulston Street. 
“In the past 12 months, Eke Panuku has worked hard to progress the concept, with early designs first shared in March, so that now we have a concept plan that incorporates the feedback,” she says.

Pukekohe town centre has been identified as a regeneration and intensification opportunity for Auckland.  

It enjoys established transport infrastructure, business services, and community facilities, and has a concentration of council landholdings that are development ready.
