New engagement tool launches in Panmure
A new interactive website aimed at gathering community feedback on the revitalisation of Panmure has launched online.
The city’s redevelopment agency Panuku Development Auckland has launched Social PinPoint for Panmure as another way to engage with the community on changes happening in their local area.
The website features an aerial map of the project area with the upcoming upgrades of the town centre's streetscape and community facilities highlighted for feedback until 5 December.
Users’ views will be passed for review to the Panmure project team and, where appropriate, applied to the design or running of the upgrades.
It is hoped the new site will help to engage new audiences with the redevelopment project, in particular, young people.
Making it easier to get around the town centre
An upgrade of a network of streets in Panmure is planned to make it easier for people to get in and around the town centre and between local nature spaces such as the Panmure Basin and Mount Wellington.
This will include Queens Road, Clifton Court, Pilkington Road, Jellicoe Road and Basin View Lane.
A multi-purpose community facility with a civic space is envisaged at the heart of the town centre where local people can come together and access key facilities such as a library and a community centre.
Panuku was given the green light to lead the refresh of Panmure town centre in partnership with Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, Auckland Council and mana whenua in March this year.
Throughout the project, Panuku will also partner with Auckland Transport, which will deliver the next phase of the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) Eastern Busway from Panmure to Pakuranga, and Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC) as it delivers 7500 new homes across Tāmaki over the next 15-20 years.
