Why has the area been chosen?
The Northcote Development area is well-suited to intensification for a number of reasons. It is very well located, close to the CBD and other key workplaces such as Takapuna and the Wairau Valley. It has good (and improving) transport links. The area has a high number of parks and reserves and easy access to the harbour.
Northcote has a strong, established and culturally diverse community. Residents have told us they feel at home in the area, have a sense of belonging and strongly believe Northcote deserves investment. They feel that the quality of the some of the housing, buildings and public facilities does not match the quality of the natural amenity. The Northcote Development will help this much-loved neighbourhood grow into its potential.
Northcote is close to the city and harbour and has a high number of parks and reserves.
