Changes afoot for Onehunga RSA

Changes-afoot-for-Onehunga-RSA

In a bid to ensure survival and carry on its legacy, Onehunga RSA is looking at selling some of its land, and possibly the RSA building on the corner of Princes Street and Onehunga Mall. At an Extraordinary General Meeting in August, Onehunga RSA members voted in favour of the sale of their car park, a quarter-acre plot of land behind their building, accessed via Neilson Street. The RSA has been in discussions with Panuku Development Auckland, the city’s redevelopment agency, about the purchase of the land at 57 Princes Street, and there have been early conversations about the potential purchase of the associated car park for redevelopment.

RSA president Jim Clark says proposal is, “It’s still in its formative stage, there’s nothing definite.” 

In yet another development, the RSA is talking to the Onehunga Working Men’s Club with a view to merging. “Both clubs will survive one way or another, either as a combined entity, or alone,” says Jim. 

It is thought that all of the land purchased by Panuku in that block (Station Block) will be used for the Onehunga Transform project.  It would be a good location for the Onehunga transport hub, (trains, buses, and light rail), which was put forward to Auckland Council as a priority by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board.

Jim says membership at the club is decreasing, and the building requires a great deal of maintenance. He doesn’t want to see the RSA “fall over”, and says by selling their land, “We’re doing our best to make sure it doesn’t.”
