About the proposed land exchange at Watchfield Close in Māngere

On 11 June 2020, the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee resolved that Auckland Council publicly notify, under section 15(2) of the Reserves Act 1977, the intention to exchange the current walkway (101m2) into Moyle Park on Watchfield Close for a new walkway (336m2) into Moyle Park on Watchfield Close in Māngere.

Kāinga Ora is redeveloping the Māngere West area and these developments present opportunities for Auckland Council to improve the amenity and functionality of existing open space.

The intended land exchange will:

  • improve access into Moyle Park
  • increase amenity values and open space (235m2)
  • provide a safer, more visible walkway.
