What we propose in your local board area in 2021/2022

We will:

  • support volunteer groups and initiatives that encourage social connectedness and strong communities, recognising the impacts of COVID-19 and changes brought about by urban development
  • protect our natural environment by supporting projects like the Albert-Eden Urban Ngahere (Forest) Project and restoration of the biodiversity of our rock forests, urban streams and coast
  • ensure a range of programmes, tailored to serve the needs of our local, diverse population, are delivered at our community facilities, libraries and recreation centres
  • consider climate change impacts in our decisions and projects, and support education, awareness raising and action
  • expand the boundary of the Dominion Road Business Improvement District.

  • funding to realign the Chamberlain Park 18-hole golf course, to develop a new park, walking and cycling connections and stream restoration
  • continuing provision of aquatic facilities in the Mt Albert area
  • funding a civic square at 915-919 New North Rd, Mt Albert, to provide a focal point for the town centre and connection to the train station.
