In this week’s “City Scene” the Council is promoting the Future Planning Framework for Auckland. If you are interested in GreyLynn 2030 you should be interested in this. Here is your chance to tell the council how you would like to see Western Bays developing.

The web site that accompanies the document, www.Itsmybackyard.co.nz is fun to use.

Auckland is your backyard: the city where you live, work or play. Because our city’s growing, we’re making plans now to determine how all of us can use land in the future.

The Auckland City Council is hoping that you will get involved with the Future Planning Framework for Auckland. This looks at how and where development should occur in your area.

Ten area plans have been developed for Auckland, sitting under an overarching citywide plan.

Following community input, the plans will form the basis for a revised isthmus district plan, due for review in 2010.

The due date for feedback is Thursday, 7th  May.

As well as reading about the plan for your area, you can see the whole picture by visiting It’s my backyard – a special website that gives more information and accepts feedback and comment.

Look out also for displays and presentations by council officers at shopping malls and local libraries.

A list of dates and venues can be found under public notices.
