Takapuna’s town square design consultation

Takapuna’s  town square design consultation - Takapuna

From Monday 20 July, the Takapuna community can have their say on the proposed design of their future town square. The public consultation is seeking the community’s views to confirm the design includes the things that are most important to them, submitted via previous consultation and engagement. Feedback will be considered in the refinement of the design.

About the design

The concept design for the town square has been informed by previous engagement with the community over several years. The temporary public space at 38 Hurstmere Road has provided further insights into what locals would like to see in the town square, exploring themes around shelter, play, public performance, cycling and environmental issues.

As a result, the design includes plenty of spaces for people to sit and play in the sun or shade, a water feature and an outdoor dining area. A potential location for the Anzac Memorial has also been identified in the design. This will need further input from certain groups including returned services, and consideration given to how it could be relocated and integrated into the design of the town square.

The proposed design can accommodate a variety of public events, including concerts and a market with over 80 stalls. Temporary staging can be installed over the water feature.
