The Waitematā Local Board has given support to the construction of the National Erebus Memorial at Auckland’s Dove-Myer Robinson Park / Taurarua Pā, commonly known as the Parnell Rose Gardens.

The proposed site is on a lawn area overlooking Judges Bay.

Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage is responsible for creating the National Erebus Memorial, which will be completed in early 2020. The Ministry submitted a proposal to the Local Board which received support yesterday, following endorsement from local iwi Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.

Local Board support is subject to sign-off of the memorial design parameters and landowner approval once a preferred design has been selected. The Ministry for Culture and Heritage is providing funding to cover all costs relating to the installation and future maintenance of the structure and associated landscape features.
