We’re proposing some changes to the Waiapu Precinct in Onehunga’s town centre.

Panuku Development Auckland, supported by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, is exploring what Onehunga’s Waiapu block could look like in the future. The Waiapu block borders Church Street and Arthur Street adjacent to Onehunga Mall, including the parking lot next to the supermarket and the green space in the centre.

These are some of the things we are thinking about in the Waiapu Precinct:

• Improving public open space
• Creating walking and cycling paths through the site
• Providing new homes and places for businesses

Save oUr Native Forest

Experts have proved that only a wee bit of maintenance is required to get it safe but Auckland Council have not done that since the damage from the 10 April 2018 storm but have instead kept the forest path closed in a hope that this propaganda will convince you otherwise. All that's required is some work to about a dozen trees and it will be as safe as houses.
Their planned destruction is now just about them winning, IMO. This will cost over $760,000 (according to WLB agenda for Tuesday's public meeting) to leave the area without bird habitat for over 50 years. Currently this is the homeof numerous bird species - tui, fantail, morepork, kingfisher, rosella, thrush, blackbird, waxeyes, shags, herons and visits from royal spoonbills and possibly kaka. The plan is to fell and leave 218 trees of about 40 metres on site. Leaving a fire hazard, an eyesore and little room to plant IMO.
The plan shown is an accurate plan of the carnage that will be caused by 'clear felling'
Help us stop this waste of public money and unnecessary destruction by signing, please.

Polynesian Panthers plaque gone walkabout?

Hi all. I've walked shuttles up and down Three Lamps looking for the "Polynesian Panther Party" commemorative plaque from 2016 on one of the shop fronts, and could not see any trace of it at all.
It's such significant piece of history here in Central Auckland, especially for the Pacific community that still reside here, and I hope nobody has done away with it or defaced it to the point it had to be removed.
From photos I've seen, the plaque sat between the ASB branch on Ponsonby and Encore Fashion. Any help on where it is or at least what happened to it would be great! Attached are pics that I derived my plaque placement theory from plus the original article.
Thanks!

We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
