The Government’s Urban Development Group, formerly called Homes Land Community, proposes to replace 2500 state houses with up to 10,000 new homes in its Mt Roskill redevelopment area (see map) over the next 10-15 years.
To achieve this, the Urban Development Group is developing a draft spatial delivery strategy for part of Mt Roskill to support the increase in housing, alongside investments in infrastructure & community services.
Council principal planner David Wong says in his report on the transformation to the Albert-Eden & Puketapapa Local Boards, that the council’s plans & places department intends to develop an integrated area plan for part of the 2 board areas.
In August, the council’s planning committee will establish an integrated area plan working party comprising ward councillors & nominated local board members to support development of that plan. The proposal goes to the Puketapapa board this Thursday.
Mr Wong said rezoning to support better land use & transport outcomes could be undertaken at the same time as the development of the integrated area plan.
He said the Urban Development Group had engaged with the council, mana whenua, infrastructure providers (eg, Auckland Transport & Watercare Services) & Crown agencies (eg, Ministry of Education) on its draft spatial delivery strategy, and was progressing detailed neighbourhood masterplanning in part of the Mt Roskill area.
“The development of the integrated area plan could identify different land use opportunities, improvements to business centres, key infrastructure needs and opportunities to enhance landscape & heritage features. However, the integrated area plan is a non-statutory planning document and cannot set rules for controlling development or directly approve the funding of projects.
The Urban Development Group has proposed developing the integrated area plan over 15 months, starting in August and running through to October next year, followed by 2 months to prepare & adopt the final plan:
August 2019-January 2020: Review existing relevant information
February: First community consultation period
March-May: Review feedback and prepare draft integrated area plan
June-August: Second community consultation period on the approved draft integrated area plan
September-October: Review feedback & plan amendments
November-December: Prepare & adopt final area plan update

What does the BDeep logo represent?
I’ve been working for some time on how to refocus content on The Bob Dey Property Report, and BDeep – the accumulation of deeper content on areas & sectors over time – is central to that.
You will see 3 BDeep stories posted today, on Glenfield, Mangere and this one on Mt Roskill.
In themselves, they are not earth-shattering. Their role is to present a piece of a gradually developing jigsaw, which you will be able to access via the regular sector & neighbourhood categories of this website, or by clicking through to BDeep stories via the BDeep & the Quick tab at the top of the page.
Over time, you will be able to refer to these lists of items to:
- gauge plans for an area and, in time, how those plans are working out
- see development proposals
- examine wider pictures showing access – transport, costs, and
- see how sectors fit together to form communities – or if that isn’t happening.
Today’s BDeep pieces are derived from council local board agendas and refer to work already underway. The Mangere & Mt Roskill reports follow work on upgrading Housing NZ stock in those 2 suburbs, and also the start of a transition for industrial land long occupied by Foodstuffs and sold last year to the Goodman Property Trust, which you can link to here:
