Good news for the Auckland Women’s Suffrage Memorial, Margaret Wilson and the National Council of Women. Cr Cathy Casey moved the last amendment at the end of 5 days of Unitary Plan meetings to get support for lifting the proposed draft Unitary Plan designation of “road reserve” from Khartoum Place and replacing it with an “open space” zoning.
It passed unanimously!
The other good news is that in the draft Unitary Plan the Women’s Suffrage Memorial in Khartoum Place is identified as “a historic heritage place” (reference number 02482 of Appendix 9). It is a category B heritage item which has significant heritage values in terms of Social (B) and context (H).
