In July and August 2019 we ran a community discussion about the future of the Mt Roskill Town Centre (aka Mt Roskill shops, “Big Roskill”, corner Mt Albert and Dominion Rds) called Big Ideas for Mt Roskill Town Centre.
We had an overwhelming response with over 400 ideas suggested through postcards, email, online form, sessions with intermediate students, Facebook and at a well-attended public meeting hosted by local Member of Parliament Michael Wood.
We’ve now collated and analysed those ideas into our vision to Revive Roskill Town Centre – addressing the four themes of:
Supporting a thriving area for local businesses
Developing a place that attracts our vibrant and diverse community
Securing the transport future of Dominion Road
Creating a safe and flourishing Roskill Town Centre
Each area has specific ideas for actions we hope to take, with the community, like investigating the possibility of a food court (the most popular suggestion!), working with real estate agents on temporary opportunities like pop-up shops, and seeking certainty about the light rail project that will come to Roskill at some point.
