Fruit tree planting on council land

March 9th, 2010

We would like to thank the community board for the funding of 131 fruit trees for our wider community Mt Eden, Mt Albert and Epsom.

The planting of fruit trees in parks, playgrounds and reserves with Auckland City council on council land will take place in July 2010/2011. A lot of people have been involved in this project we started 2 years ago and we would like to thank everyone for their work such as collecting suitable sites for council and supporting our vision.

Resource consent application at 395 Mt Eden Road

March 1st, 2010

Email received from council planner:

“Further to my phone call – the application has been amended since it was originally lodged in light of concerns from submitters and Council officers. The building has been reduced to two-stories and all on-site parking has been removed. The proposal now has a parking shortfall of 21 spaces (as opposed to the 22 space shortfall previously proposed).

I’m currently waiting on the final plans to be submitted by the applicant before I can complete my report.

I trust this information answers your query satisfactorily. “

Mt Eden Community Garden group to become an incorporated society

February 16th, 2010

News from the Community Garden Group:

“The group who formed the Mt Eden Community Garden group have decided to become an incorporated society. We met with the council last week to find out if they would allow us (the Mt Eden Community Garden group & Hand Weavers & Spinners Guild) to jointly apply for a lease of 25 Poronui Street before our incorporation had come through. We got a definitive no. Both entities had to have a legal entity. A solution was offered that the Garden Group would join the Spinners and Weavers Guild and they would have part of their objectives would be to pursue organic gardening and to grow dye plants. We are now applying under the Hand Weavers & Spinners Guild for the lease. We have gained letters of support from various organisations- noteably Friends of Maungawhau, Mount Eden Village People, Disabled Citizens Centre, Lynda Hallinan- NZ Gardener so far.”
