Upper Harbour Local Board

 

About the Upper Harbour area

The Upper Harbour Local Board includes Whenuapai and Hobsonville in the west, Paremoremo, Greenhithe, Wainoni, Albany, and Northcross and Pinehill in the east. The area contains the Paremoremo Scenic Reserve, the largest bush reserve on the North Shore and a site of ecological significance.

Upper Harbour is a rapidly growing area. The Upper Harbour Local Board area combines two areas previously under the jurisdiction of two separate councils. It is an area undergoing significant change. In its southern reaches the redevelopment of the Hobsonville airbase will ultimately be home to a new primary and secondary school, new business opportunities and a new ferry terminal. The development of State Highway (SH)18 has led to significant work on planning of the Hobsonville corridor and the Hobsonville village area.

The SH18 Hobsonville Deviation and the SH16 Brigham Creek motorway extension will be completed in Spring 2011 - a project that will significantly reduce congestion in north-west Auckland and improve journey times between the west and the north shore.

Traffic on Hobsonville Road is expected to reduce from 40,000 vehicles per day currently to 6,500 per day. The area contains the Paremoremo Scenic Reserve, the largest bush reserve on the North Shore and a site of ecological significance. This reserve is a critical part of the North West Wildlink which links the Hauraki Gulf islands and the Waitakere Ranges together.
