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

We will:

  • support initiatives like the Wairau Estuary Restoration programme that protect and enhance our natural environment
  • ensure our parks and facilities meet the needs of our diverse and growing population - the delivery of the new toilet and changing facility on Takapuna Beach will further enhance this popular spot
  • fund initiatives that help our communities connect and feel safe
  • work with sport organisations to ensure everyone can get active, stay fit and play organised sport whatever their age or ability
  • provide safe walking and cycling paths
  • support and fund events that encourage people to come to our town centres and take advantage of all they have to offer
  • look for opportunities to develop relationships with iwi in our area.

We will advocate:

  • to the Governing Body for an extension to the length of time that the Water Quality and Natural Environment Targeted rates are collected, ideally for the duration of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 rather than finishing in 2028
  • for an increase in budget for the Safe Networks Programme that supports Safeswim and the work to identify and remedy illegal discharges at our beaches
  • for local board transport capital funding to contribute to the cost of the new walking and cycling connection between Francis Street and Esmonde Road.
