Despite last year’s submissions overwhelmingly supporting creating a safe community space for everyone to enjoy at the Landing – the Council are doing another round of public consultation, and we need you to have your say again.

It will only take a few minutes of your time to ensure that the future of the Landing stays community-focused with safe and plentiful areas for sailing, waka ama, paddling and other active recreation. Every voice counts. 

As our community grows and evolves, so do our needs for recreational spaces catering to various interests. More and more we’re seeing recreational spaces being developed for commercial use, and as waterfront access becomes scarce, it’s crucial we protect what we can for generations to come.

Auckland Council’s proposal to develop the Landing into a community recreation space offers an exciting opportunity to create a hub that fosters a sense of togetherness and enriches lives through water and land-based sports events, farmers markets, seafood festivals, and so much more. 

Let’s rally behind this proposal and contribute to creating a vibrant, thriving hub that will benefit current and future generations alike.

Embracing Active Lifestyles

Auckland’s breathtaking natural beauty is the perfect backdrop for encouraging active and healthy lifestyles. By transforming the Landing into a space that accommodates a variety of events & activities the proposal aligns with our city’s commitment to promoting physical well-being. 

Celebrating Cultural Heritage

A multisport paddling centre dedicated to Waka Ama at The Landing holds immense value in facilitating a deeper understanding of and connection to our cultural heritage. By offering a platform for the practice and exploration of Waka Ama, a sport deeply rooted in Māori culture and history, the centre not only provides an opportunity for individuals to engage in physical activity but also serves as a powerful means of honouring and recognising our ancestral connections to the land and ocean.

Boosting Tourism and Economic Growth

The development of the Landing as a multifunctional space has the potential to attract visitors from both within and outside the city. Sports and events draw tourism, injecting vitality into the local economy. Increased foot traffic can lead to new business opportunities, job creation, and a flourishing local economy that benefits everyone in the community.

Connecting with our Moana

Amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life, it’s crucial to have accessible spaces where residents can unwind and connect with nature. The proposed recreational space provides a environment where individuals and families can escape the city’s clamour, breathe in fresh sea air, and find solace in the beauty of nature.

We believe supporting Auckland Council’s proposal to develop the Landing into a space for active recreation is a step towards a brighter, more connected future for our community. By embracing a space that offers a myriad of activities, from water sports events to farmers’ markets, we are investing in our well-being, unity, and shared growth. 

Once again, we need to rally behind this proposal and contribute to creating a vibrant, thriving hub that will benefit current and future generations alike.
