Restore Mt Roskill's Cross/Star

The cross/star which traditionally sits atop Mount Roskill at Christmas and Easter was erected by local churches and the Mt Roskill Borough Council circa 1960, and has since become an icon of Mount Roskill and an enduring symbol of hope and goodwill to passersby and visitors for generations.

The Mt Roskill cross was permanently removed last year as part of the decisions made over Auckland's mountains by the Maunga Authority. No major groundswell of support has ever existed for removing this monument from our shared space.

We have heard from our concerned community. Public consultation should have been a bigger part of the process - a symbol such as our cross connects our community in ways that are too important to ignore. We believe the process leading up to the cross's removal left much to be desired.

We ask the Maunga Authority to genuinely listen to Puketepapa's voice.

We seek the return of Mount Roskill's cross/star to its rightful place on the Mount at Christmas and Easter.
