MANUKAU AND ONEHUNGA SET FOR LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT

Date: 08/12/2015

From Auckland Council - Our Auckland

Manukau and Onehunga are set for significant long-term improvements as part of 19 locations across the city that have been identified by Auckland’s new urban regeneration agency....In Onehunga, Panuku will use available land holdings in the town centre, along with the Onehunga Port in the future, to attract and enable developers to build high quality, mixed style housing close to public transport and the water’s edge.

Flagship centres

The metropolitan centre of Manukau along with the Onehunga town centre and port were approved as the flagship projects. These locations will undergo a transformation similar in scale to the award-winning regeneration of the Wynyard Quarter, while retaining their unique identity so the collective aspirations and needs of their communities are achieved.

In Manukau, Panuku will work with central government to create more housing, including affordable housing located close to employment opportunities. Panuku will also make better use of council-owned sites in the centre – all of which will leverage off existing investment in the area.

In Onehunga, Panuku will use available land holdings in the town centre, along with the Onehunga Port in the future, to attract and enable developers to build high quality, mixed style housing close to public transport and the water’s edge.

Changing the port to more public use is seen as the key to unlocking the economic, recreation and transportation potential of the Manukau Harbour. There is also an opportunity to work with the government on more housing in the wider area.
