Albert-Eden Local Board area

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In the 2024/2025 financial year we plan to invest $3.9 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own). We also plan to invest $16.4 million to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities.

In this long-term plan, local boards have more responsibility for decisions about local assets and services than in previous years.

This includes making decisions about which assets (such as parks and community halls) and services (such as libraries) we should prioritise with funds allocated by the Governing Body.

Some funding decisions are not the responsibility of a local board and in such cases the board can:

  • ask the Governing Body to consider funding from its long-term plan budget
  • ask a council-controlled organisation (such as Auckland Transport) to deliver the service during the 10 years of the long-term plan.

Albert-Eden Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

The Albert-Eden Local Board proposed priorities for its area for the next 10 years. These priorities depend on funding from the Governing Body.

They are to:

  • work with the community to protect our environment
  • maintain our facilities, services and leases so they are affordable, fit-for-purpose, well-used and respond to the needs of a growing population
  • provide long-term library and community centre services in Point Chevalier and maintain the community centre in Sandringham
  • buy, swap or receive land to build new parks in areas of growth
  • support Kaupapa Māori (Māori principles and plans) and their priorities
  • continue to support local businesses
  • support arts, events and nightlife (such as drinking in bars, eating in restaurants, entertainment) to attract people to our town centres.

  • plan how our parks and open spaces can respond to growth, making the most of what we have, balancing different uses and connecting green spaces
  • support our community groups by helping to build their capability and networks, and provide funding, information and new skills
  • settle in at the new, medium-term location for the Point Chevalier library and continue to investigate a long-term location and how we will fund it
  • work with the community on activities (like small markets) in the Mount Albert Civic Square
  • make our parks rubbish bin-free to minimise waste and improve environmental and climate outcomes.
