Proposal update

We advised you in November 2019 that these works were scheduled to be constructed by July-December 2020. This project is part of the Footpath Programme and is dependent on the level of funding we receive from Auckland Council. This year funding has been reduced due to Covid-19. Planning and design will continue but currently many projects, including this project, cannot be delivered in the 2020/2021 financial year.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a construction date until we know more about the funding allocated to the Footpath Programme next financial year (July 2021 to June 2022). We’ll update you again with more detail about this project in the latter half of 2021.

We've proposed changes in your area

In November 2019 we proposed a short section of new footpath on Third View Avenue in Beachlands. A small parking bay would need to be removed in order to construct this footpath.

Our proposal responded to a request from the Franklin Local Board to improve the walking connection to the local shops. The proposed path will make it easier for pedestrians, especially vulnerable footpath users, to walk to the nearby shops.

Proposal outcome

We have made a minor change to the design based on community feedback. The footpath will follow the kerb line. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.

Feedback received

  • This proposal received positive responses from stakeholders who supported the proposed footpath along Third View Avenue.
  • The large concrete area outside the garages is popular with teenagers and children using it as a skateboard area which is very noisy and suggestion that increasing the concrete area would make this worse.
    We believe the proposed type of concrete surfacing that will be used will be less attractive to skateboard on. The grass berm is intended to assist with keeping people on the footpath. Together, these should discourage people from skateboarding directly outside the property.

Next steps

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a construction date until we know more about the funding allocated to the Footpath Programme next financial year (July 2021 to June 2022). We’ll update you again with more detail about this project in the latter half of 2021.
