Howick Heritage Plan 2016

The 2016 Howick Heritage Plan is a guide to the management and preservation of heritage interests across the Howick Local Board area.

The plan - drafted following extensive discussions with community interest groups including iwi, local historians and the Howick Historical Village - will help guide local board on future heritage projects.

Adopted in September 2016, the plan is a guiding document featuring key principles:

  • Explore Howick's intertwined Māori and European history and link this with that of greater Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland.
  • Capture and record the area's varied written, cultural, oral and visual history as it has evolved up to today.
  • Identify, preserve and protect natural features, historic places, property and relics within the wider Howick area.
  • Recognise, promote and celebrate Howick's unique history through education, exploration and tourism initiatives.

Examples of how these principles can be used include information panels, murals, digital and web-based information, and developing a heritage education unit for local secondary schools.

Proposed park for former Greenmount landfill site

The Howick Local Board is proposing to transform the former Greenmount landfill site at East Tamaki into a native forest alongside leisure areas, children's play and fitness facilities, an off-leash dog area, walking and cycling tracks and access to the summit.

The 54ha site on the corner of Harris and Smales Roads was used as a landfill by Envirowaste Services Limited (ESL) up until 2005 and since 2006 has been undergoing managed fill operations to restore its original landform.

A concept design was developed in 2016, following consultation with the public and mana whenua. The local board approved the plan in June 2016. The site was previously a landfill, and the design needs to suit these constraints. But the final result is intended to be a monitored, safe and secure recreation and relaxation space.

Landfill operators are still completing works to meet resource consent obligations, before the final sign-off and handover to Council for development. We anticipated the handover to be mid-2020 however there have been delays in the final handover to Council due to some conditions of the resource consent still not being met, as such the final handover has been delayed until at least late 2021. Once the handover is complete, and subject to site condition, development of the reserve will then commence.
