Vote saves Auckland’s Chamberlain Park Golf Course

POSTED ON November 28, 2019 @ 6:21 pm

After a hard fought battle Auckland’s Chamberlain Park will now be retained as an 18 hole golf course.

The Albert-Eden Local Board voted on Monday night to reverse a 2015 decision which would have seen the Mt Albert course reduced to nine holes with the addition of two reserves. Under the new proposal the eastern end of Chamberlain Park from Meola Creek will be retained as a golf course, while the western end will turned into a park and the adjoining Meola Creek will be restored as a wetland.

The board also voted to consult with stakeholders from Auckland Golf, New Zealand Golf and the Chamberlain Park Men’s and Ladies Golf Clubs about the planned changes.

Newly elected Albert-Eden Local Board chair and City Vision candidate Margi Watson said it was a good outcome.

“I would like to say that I think this has been a test of the new board. Whether it’s people from the golfing community, or people who want to open up the park, we all need to work together.”
