Auckland Regional Growth Plan
This intensive group of planning workshops look at the issues around transportation and future growth for the greater Auckland area. Urbanism+ developed a complex model and testing program and lead the workshops to look at areas of future growth and how best to connect them to not only Auckland city but also to local amenities, jobs, schools and local community infrastructure. The project considered step change and prioritising Auckland future growth areas and included consultation with government organisations, effected communities and the development community. This award-winning project helped prioritise $8 billion of transport infrastructure to cater for 30 years of growth including new town centres, residential communities, employment areas, rail stations, rapid transit networks, and cycleways.
Craig Pocock’s role within the workshop was to run and manage workshop groups considering the environmental issues from soil and water quality, ecology links, flooding and ground water table, visual and landscape values to opportunities and links for developing a national cycleway connecting through growth areas.
