NPDC to improve access in growing New Plymouth suburb with the help of property developer


NPDC in conjunction with Maia Developments will build a new public path alongside a new 119-home development in Highlands Park to provide residents better access through to Mangorei Road in New Plymouth.


The plan also includes a solution to resolve a boundary issue alongside neighbouring properties in Ainslee Street which has been longstanding and unwanted for all involved.


NPDC thanks Brian Marsden, of Maia Developments, who has worked closely with them on the planned path connecting Ainslee Street to Tupuhi Place, which will be built as part of the development on Mangorei Road.


“This will be a great new public asset that will increase connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists in a growing neighbourhood, and it shows how a new development can enhance a key part of New Plymouth city,” said New Plymouth District Mayor Neil Holdom.

“We appreciate the efforts of Brian Marsden and Maia Developments to not only create a quality subdivision, but also for their willingness to enter into the agreement for the good of residents, which is a win-win for all involved.”

Work on the new public path is anticipated to begin late 2023.
