Non-compliant pool gates are the main cause for drownings of children in domestic pools. To keep your pool safe: • maintain your pool fence • ensure your gates are compliant with safety standards • register your pool with council. By law, owners need to register their pool. Inspections are carried out every three years and Auckland Council offcers provide free safety advice to pool owners. To check if your pool is registered call Auckland Council on 09 301 0101, or for more information about pool fencing requirements visit our website www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz SPA POOLS HALF PRICE SALE Rhapsody Elite 2070 x 2270 x 870 2 only $8,995.00 incl GST Radisson Supreme 2.0x2.0x.80 3 only $7,995.00 incl GST Radisson Elite 2.0x2.0x.80 1 only $6,995.00 incl GST Recliner Elite 1940 x 1940 x .745 2 only $5,995.00 incl GST SPA SYSTEMS LIMITED 19 OMEGA STREET, ALBANY Ph: 414-7454 Open Monday -- Friday 8am -- 4pm or by appointment.

Big plans are afoot around Hob- sonville and Westgate, transform- ing Auckland s northwest. Three centres covering 450 hec- tares form a commercial and retail hub for the northwest, likely to bring 19,700 new jobs and 5500 new homes. The hub s impact will be felt Auckland-wide. During the first stage of the $1 billion project a new town centre at the Westgate shopping centre is being built (by 2017), a new 3000-home and marine precinct at Hobsonville Pt (2021) and redevel- opment of the Hobsonville village centre (2030). The project means retail and jobs in an area that sees many people travelling long distances to work and shop. Developing the area has been on the table for the past decade, originally under the former Wai- takere City Council. Now it is a joint development between Auck- land Council and the New Zea- land Retail Property Group. The council s investment is $323 mil- lion. The north-west transformation project is a triumph of collabor- ation between the council and development partners, deputy mayor Penny Hulse says. It s a blueprint for what can be achieved as the region grows and develops under the direction of the Auckland Plan. The result will be a balanced and integrated urban community ensuring regional growth and social, rec- reational, environmental and transport benefits. It will defi- nitely be the place to live, work, do business, play and shop. A new town centre with shops and restaurants is being built next to the existing Westgate shopping centre, which will stay. The new extension will be larger than Sylvia Park in Mt Wellington and Albany s main shopping area. Recreational facilities are plan- ned, including trails around stor- mwater lakes. Road links include a two- kilometre main road through the Westgate development and access from Fred Taylor Dr (the old SH16) along Northside Dr, with a bridge across the Kumeu motor- way extension to link the Upper Harbour motorway. The west struggles to keep peo- ple shopping locally, apart from groceries, and sees large numbers heading to Albany, Glenfield and the city centre for more retail var- iety. The project includes redevelop- ing the Hobsonville village centre and employment park along the Hobsonville corridor. That is cen- tred on the $220m motorway, fin- ished in July 2011, linking the west to Albany, Hibiscus Coast and North Shore. The full western ring route should be finished about 2020. New retail shops are planned in the present Hobsonville village. This project includes a new super- market, 205 new homes and a new industrial area providing 5,580 new jobs. Work is expected to start this year or next and be fin- ished by 2030. A 52ha business park will be developed between Brigham Creek Rd and Westpark Dr. A new 3000-home residential and 20ha marine precinct at Hob- sonville Pt is due to be completed by 2021. Auckland Welsh Choir tribute to patron saint The Auckland Welsh Choir returns to Takapuna next month for its annual celebration in tribute to St David, the patron saint of Wales. This year s programme, entitled Songs of Love and Land, combines its cornerstone Welsh music with extracts from Vaughan Williams Folk Songs of the Four Seasons,a sample of songs from closer to home, and a topical surprise. The concert will feature soloists and the chamber choir in a variety of performance genres, including songs from the great classic, Les Miserables. The choir raised over $4000 for Hospice North Shore last year by donating profits from ticket sales. This year s concert will take place at St Joseph s Catholic Church, Takapuna, on March 3 at 3pm. Tickets can be purchased for $25 through iticket.co.nz or are avail- able at the door. Children are free and there are concessions for students and group bookings.
