Auckland Council’s waster and drinking water provider Watercare has been letting people in the North West of Auckland know the very significant projects they have underway to cater for the growth planned for their area.
I popped into Watercare’s open day in Greenhithe to look in more detail at the North Harbour No.2 Watermain project and the Northern Interceptor Wastewater Pipeline project.
The big issue for Auckland’s new mayor to resolve is where the growth will go and what funding is in place to support it. Differences of opinion between different parts of council have caused problems with our growth planning, as have different funding priorities.
My re-write of the Auckland Plan will help us better align our priorities.
