Waitakere City Council decided on Thursday to keep community board representation off its NorSGA Urban Development Committee.
The council confirmed the decision it made a year ago, after considering a request from the Massey Community Board to rethink. The council decided having 7 councillors on the committee was representation enough.
The NorSGA committee is an unusual one, with the councillors joined by representatives of organisations involved in building major public & private infrastructure in the northern strategic growth area on it. The area it covers includes the former Hobsonville airbase land, Hobsonville village, Massey North & Westgate.
NorSGA committee chairman Linda Cooper said the committee operated at a strategic level, where various agencies such as the Auckland Regional Council, Auckland Regional Transport Authority and property developers came together to share project information & updates.
“This committee is a unique model aimed at bringing together the council and all of the organisations that have the expertise needed to ensure we develop the best new town centre we can.”
