Join us at Auckland Conversations as we discuss how to manage urban growth with world leading expert city-maker, Hila Oren.
6:30pm: Networking & refreshments
Auckland’s growth is far from slowing and looking ahead 30 years, our urban area will grow and change. How do we manage this growth? A big part of the future lies within south Auckland.
The south is the largest future urban growth area in Auckland with around 5,300 hectares of land identified for urban development.
Auckland Council are currently working on structure plans for both Drury and Pukekohe and the Supporting Growth Alliance between NZTA, Auckland Transport and Auckland Council are providing expertise in the transport planning for that area.
Urban development expert Hila Oren, CEO of the Tel-Aviv Foundation, will speak on her experiences in infrastructure development around the world. She will be joined by a panel of industry experts to discuss how areas in South Auckland, such as Drury and Pukekohe, can leverage off the changes in Auckland to create a platform for future development.
Andrew Baker, deputy chair of Franklin Local Board, will MC the night with Deputy Mayor Bill Cashmore providing closing remarks. Hila will also be joined by a panel of industry experts including:
John Duguid, General Manager Plans & Places, Auckland Council
Cynthia Gillespie, Executive General Manager, Planning & Investment, Auckland Transport
Quin Henderson, Chief Executive Officer, Southbase Construction Ltd
