auckland Council Consultation

Dear Erebus National Memorial supporters,

Please see the communication below about the Auckland Council process for final submissions being requested to the Waitemata Local Board, before final approval is given for the Dove-Meyer Robinson Park for the Erebus National Memorial. Note the close-off date for submissions is 8thOctober. I encourage you to make a submission, if only a sentence or two or a paragraph outlining your support for the project and why the centrally located Dove-Meyer Robinson Park is a good relocation.

Many thanks,

Richard Waugh

 Dear family members,  

New artist impressions of the proposed National Erebus Memorial now online

The National Erebus Memorial architects, Studio Pacific Architecture, have just provided us with some new artist impressions. These are now live on ourwebsite. They enable you to see some of the details of the memorial, including the beautiful stainless-steel wall with its snowflake cut-outs. We are also enjoying the way the exterior surface reflects the green of the surrounding park. 

Reminder: Auckland Council consultation drop-in session

Saturday 28 September, 1-3pm, Dove-Myer Robinson Park, Gladstone Road, Parnell

For those of you based in Auckland, a reminder that Auckland Council is hosting a drop-in session at Dove-Myer Robinson Park tomorrow from 1-3pm as part of its landowner approval consultation for the National Erebus Memorial. 

Auckland Council staff will be on-site to talk people through the project. The exact location for the memorial will be marked out for the afternoon, which provides a good opportunity to get a sense of how the memorial will sit within the landscape of the park. 

This consultation was requested by Auckland Council’s Waitematā Local Board to inform its final decision about landowner approval for the National Erebus Memorial.  Conditional approval was granted last year.

For those of you not in Auckland, the council would still like to hear your views. You can have your say via its website. The deadline for submissions is 8 October

Ngā mihi,

The National Erebus Memorial Team
