In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $591,000 to renew and develop assets and $2.7 million to maintain and operate assets as well as provide local services, programmes and initiatives.

What we have been doing in your local board area

Each year, we deliver activities and services in your local board area. These are based on our Local Board Plan, which sets our three-year direction for the local board.

This financial year we are delivering, alongside the AoteaOra Trust, new food and water resilience initiatives such as a sustainability advisor role, community gardener role, and water tanks.

We have begun consultation on the Ahu Moana pilot project and continued grant funding to support mana whenua and our community health, education, art, welfare, tourism, and environmental groups.
