Destruction of Western Springs Forest.

Amanda from Westmere

I hope everyone is aware that today the Auckland Council has begun the total destruction of the Western Springs Forest by clear felling everything. This includes the regenerating native plants understorey. They started by cutting the surrounding native trees on the outskirts to put in a approximately 5 metre road across the whole site. The contractors will be back on Monday. Please go and see for yourself what is happening and if you don’t like what you see make your protest known.

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.

Public feedback sought on low traffic area trial: Onehunga

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Aucklanders are being called to have their say about the new layout of the Arthur Grey low traffic area in Onehunga.

The people-friendly area will be trialled for the next two weeks.

It is designed to allow access to cars but stop them from using the location as a short-cut.

Trials have been taking place around Arthur St and Grey St in Onehunga, and Eastview Rd in Glen Innes as part of the national Innovating Streets for People pilot fund.

Local Board chair Chris Makoare said it was critical to get enough feedback to make the best decisions for communities.

He has urged members of the public to be patient and to complete the online survey on the stage 1 layout.

The board wants to know what residents think about the area being trialled, about road safety, traffic speeds and volumes.
