You're invited to a public meeting on "Verran Mews", which is a fast-tracked proposal for 110 swellings at 19a-25 Verran Rd and 19 West Glade Cres.

📅 When: 7pm Thursday 14 March (next week)
📍 Where: Verran School hall, Verran Road


This will be an opportunity to hear an update from Melanie Kenrick, myself and neighbours on the proposal, and to share your views with the community.

The proposed development is for 110 dwellings, community facilities and new private roads, even though about half of the land is zoned as Single House Zone.
The application is being processed under the COVID-19 Fast Track legislation, which means that a decision on it will be made by a panel of experts without public submissions or a hearing. However the Kaipātiki Local Board is able to provide written comments on behalf of the community.

Around 100 public rubbish bins will be removed from the Kaipātiki Local Board area during March.
As part of the Mayor's 2023/24 budget cuts, councillors agreed to remove one third of all public rubbish bins from across Auckland.
While it is true that there are some bins that are close together and probably not needed, this decision was purely based on cost-saving rather than whether the bins are actually needed.
Facing this enforced cut, the Kaipātiki Local Board directed staff to not remove bins at park entrances or bus stops. But we will still have bins removed from within parks, town centres and local shopping areas.
Meanwhile, the Local Board has decided to fund some wheelie bins in wooden frames that will replace some of the lost bins in high-use areas of parks (these will be installed at a later date). Hopefully that will help to mitigate some of the loss.

The Kaipātiki Local Board is very pleased to announce that the Kaipātiki Local Park Management Plan has been adopted!
Six years in the making and over 480 pages long, this is a reserve management plan that covers all parks across the Kaipātiki Local Board area.
The plan provides policies that apply to all of our reserves, as well as individual maps and management intentions for every reserve.
Thankyou to everyone who submitted on the draft plan and presented to the hearing panel. The document will be available online soon.

Some of the changes introduced in this plan:
* All of our parks are now held as reserves under the Reserves Act 1977, and have been correctly classified as to their current purpose.
* Little Shoal Bay Reserve: Boat maintenance and haulage yard activities have been discontinued.
* Le Roys Bush Reserve: The bush area to the east of the carpark has been moved from Little Shoal Bay Reserve to Le Roys Bush Reserve, meaning that all of the bush is now part of Le Roys. This simplifies the boundary and makes policies, dog rules, etc, consistent.
* The Eskdale network of parks, and the Witheford network of parks will each become single reserves. We will consult on English and Te Reo names for each of them in due course.
* Søren G Christensen Reserve: A Beach Haven park that was supposed to be named after early settler Søren Christensen in 1997, has now been fulfilled (www.nzherald.co.nz...).
* All land parcels have been examined and legal boundaries have been corrected.
* Some reserve names have been simplified (eg, removed "place", "street", etc).
