Parks used as PR

A summary of Auckland Council’s acquisition of open space for the 2017/18 financial year shows that a total of $12.76 million was spent on land for new parks in the Hibiscus Coast area.

This is made up of: Red Beach Road (former Peninsula Golf course development), 8099sqm neighbourhood park, $3,910,000 • Bonair Crescent (Millwater Parkway) 30,375sqm suburban park, $3,300,000 • Arran Point, Millwater, 3000sqm neighbourhood park, $3,100,000 • West Hoe Heights & Sunny Heights, Orewa, 7015sqm neighbourhood park, $2,450,000

In the report to Council’s Environment and Community Committee, staff recommend the development of “a series of communication initiatives” to highlight the new parks and open spaces acquired.

“These communication initiatives may help dispel the reputational risk that council is disposing of open space land,” the report says.
