Ph 412 9063 YO U R premier physical performance partner" More high density housing in plans By STEPHEN FORBES More high density housing looks set to be built in west Auckland under a plan for the super-city s future signed off by the Auckland Council. The Auckland Plan outlines key goals in housing, transport and economic growth over the next 30 years. Deputy mayor Penny Hulse says many of the west Auckland future growth areas highlighted in the plan have been in the planning stages for some time and can be traced back to the former Waitakere City Council. These include Hobsonville, West- gate and Massey North which will be used for more housing and busi- ness development. Mrs Hulse says there was an intense debate during the final approval of the Auckland Plan about how much development should be contained within the city s metropolitan urban limit. Most of the proposed develop- ment outside the metropolitan urban limit will be in areas like Warkworth and Pukekohe. Whereas in west Auckland we ve already got fairly defined areas for development, she says. Mrs Hulse is pleased the final plan also includes public transport projects which will benefit the west. We ve managed to include the busway alongside the northwestern motorway as a long-term project. And the CBD rail loop is in there. west Auckland will be one of the biggest benefactors from that, she says. Councillor Sandra Coney says more intense development around the town centres makes sense and it seems ratepayers agree. Most of the public submissions were in favour of a compact city. Go to aucklandcouncil.govt.nz for more information on the Auckland Plan. College needs trees Donations of plants or funds are needed to enhance Kaipara College s new buildings. South Kaipara Landcare has donated 170 trees and shrubs to kick-start planting in a large area of the school. The next stage of redevelop- ment of the college will involve demolishing the old science block and replacing a social sciences block. To donate, call Sue Glasson on 09 420 8640 ext 804. More variety will add to the reading routine of Parakai School students thanks to a successful Lions Foundation application. The school s new library has been boosted with $5000 worth of books thanks to librarian Sharon Dempsey s initiative. Students in the nor-west are invited to put pen to paper in an essay competition about reducing global poverty. Trade Aid runs the event with cash prizes for year 9 and 10 pupils. The essay topic is: Does fair trade make a difference to pov- erty reduction? The competition closes on May 4 and leads up to World Fair Trade Day on May 12. The goal is to challenge students to under- stand the work of Trade Aid and to think critically about the relationship between inter- national trade and poverty. The non-profit fair trade organisation supports disadvan- taged producers in developing countries to improve their lives through trade. The school of the winning stu- dent will also receive products.
