Public notice date: 11 November 2021

Closing date and time: 16 December 2021, 5 p.m.

Pursuant to section 24 of the Reserves Act 1977, Auckland Council hereby notifies its intention to revoke the reservation of recreation reserve over part of the land described in the schedule to this notice, situated at 1951-1955 Great North Road, Avondale (Avondale Central Reserve).

The revocation of the respective area of the reserve status is to enable development of the new Avondale library and community facility and town square/public realm improvements. The area proposed for revocation will be retained in public ownership by Auckland Council and held under the Local Government Act 2002.

The remainder of Avondale Central Reserve will continue to be classified as a reserve.

Any person wishing to object to the proposed revocation of reserve land may do so in writing and addressed to Auckland Council, Private Bag 92300, Auckland 1142, Attention: Property Review Team no later than 5pm on 16 December 2021. Alternatively, you can email your objection to:
