Mayor Goff addresses the TBBA

With Mayor Phil Goff the speaker at the May TBBA networking evening at Regatta Bar & Eatery,  Takapuna businesses turned out in force to hear – and challenge – him about plans for local development, transport and environmental issues. Mayor Goff spoke about the potential to create a real town centre for Takapuna, the need for action to unclog roads all over Auckland as the region’s population continues to grow, and of the urgent need to ensure pollution-free beaches around the region, including Takapuna. A number of TBBA members challenged Council’s proposed actions, before Channel publisher Aidan Bennett received applause and endorsement for his view that Takapuna needs to progress and that we should all look to the future and support the proposed developments.
