New Auckland settlement to rise on northern outskirts

Infrastructure is being created for a new settlement to be built on Auckland's northern outskirts.

Contracting and development business Fulton Hogan is preparing the site ready for the creation of a new 3500-residential suburb and town centre south-west of Orewa.

Warren Frogley, marketing consultant for the developers, said earthworks were now well under way to create the first and second stages of Auckland's newest suburb, to be called Milldale.

Roads have been formed and building platforms are being created to release the first house lots in stages around the middle of next year, he said.

The new settlement is across State Highway One from Millwater, the 3000-plus suburb developed by WFH, a joint venture with Fulton Hogan. Millwater is now nearing completion.

Milldale is also being developed by Fulton Hogan.

"The name Milldale derives from the Kauri that was milled from the land in the early 1800's, as far inland as Wainui," Milldale's web site says. "The development is overlooked by Mt Pleasant to the west, bordered by Wainui Road and Orewa River to the north, and Pine Valley Rd and Weiti River to the south. The land between forms a natural valley, or dale.

"As a progression from Millwater, many synergies exist between the two developments, from an historical and planning point of view - Milldale was an obvious choice, rolls off the tongue well and creates an obvious link to one of Auckland's most successful and popular residential developments."

Frogley said work building first homes should start in the next year.

"There will be high design standards required, just as there have been at Millwater. As WFH finishes Millwater, Milldale will start," he said.
