Imagine Manukau in 2040…
- The number of residents will have grown from the current 6000 to 20,000.
- There will be new affordable housing at Barrowcliffe, and regenerated healthy neighbourboods at Rātā Vine and Inverell/Hoskens.
- New residential neighbourhoods will have popped up on the DHB site and at Pacific Gardens on Great South Road.
- Te Papa Manukau will be the cornerstone of the destination and cultural offer attracting more visitors to the area.
- Hayman Park will be significantly upgraded and Manukau Plaza will be revitalised for all to enjoy.
- A healthy Puhinui Stream will be a source of community pride as it flows through the neighbourhoods from the Botanic Gardens all the way to the Manukau Harbour.
- Manukau will be firmly established as a learning, innovation and community enterprise hub, and there’ll be a new metro school in response to the growing population.
- Large scale mixed use development and a new anchor commercial tenant will help diversify the local employment opportunities.
- An upgraded Putney Way will become the new main street, while Great South and Wiri Station roads will be transformed into urban boulevards making Manukau more pedestrian friendly.
- A new mass transit line will run between Botany and the Airport (bus or light rail) through central Manukau – providing better connections for local people.
Most importantly people will start to call Manukau home – and when they do we will know that the transformation of central Manukau has been a success.
