Urban growth signalled in Southern Auckland
Park Green is providing an early opportunity for homeowners to position themselves at the Auckland City end of the future growth area to the south of Auckland. The southern growth area is forecast to comprise 45 per cent of future urban areas in Auckland over the next 30 years. Further, it was quoted in the NZ Herald on 6 March 2020 that “the wider area from Papakura to Drury and through to Paerata will one day host a similar population to North Shore’s 200,000”.
The Drury-Opaheke Structure Plan, a key part of Auckland’s southern growth area, was developed by Auckland Council in close partnership with residents, iwi, local and central government, provides a strong and ambitious vision for the area. This area is the subject of significant planning activity including a main centre (retail, commercial and offices), a number of neighbourhood centres, industrial business areas, residential areas, indicative open space, and existing and indicative new transport networks. A 180 hectare industrial park is underway at Drury South Crossing and is shaping up as a destination for manufacturing, engineering and fabrication, logistics and warehousing. Employment opportunities for 12,000 workers in the area is forecast in the plan.
