The board has agreed to develop a plan for the implementation of a Glen Eden urban design framework developed after extensive community consultation three years ago. This project to revitalise Glen Eden is hugely important and the board wants to advance the planning that will get us into a position where we can start physical work on the project and see it through, says Chairperson Denise Yates. During the next six months, the focus will be on: prioritising town centre streetscape improvements, including the reconfguration of parking and road layouts investigating the availability of land for a wider pedestrian lane between West Coast Road and Glenmall Place scoping improvements to the public spaces of the town centre taking into account history, cultural heritage, natural features and vantage points for viewing the Waitākere Ranges developing a walking and cycling network plan. Throughout the planning stages, there will be extensive and ongoing consultation with local business, community and sports groups, churches, historical societies, and organisations such as Friends of Waikumete, Returned Services Association and Playhouse Theatre. The most exciting part of the Lopdell Precinct Redevelopment has started, with work beginning on the $20 million seismic strengthening and refurbishment of Lopdell House.
