Phase one - Devonport-Takapuna plan update
Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board should include in their next three-year plan. It has been great to hear from you and see your creative ideas and passion for your communities and neighbourhoods.
Who we heard from
We held meetings with key stakeholders representing youth, ethnic minorities, the business community, environmental groups, people with disabilities, seniors, as well as mangers of our community houses. We distributed postcards of our Local Board Plan outcomes and had people return them to us with their feedback. We a great deal of engagement on the AK Have Your Say page, where people were able to contribute ideas and discuss them with one another. In total we received over 90 contributions from around 65 people.
What you said
These are some of the key themes we heard from all the feedback received:
- Water quality on our beaches and in the Wairau Estuary is very important to Devonport-Takapuna
- There need to be better transport options, including cycling and pedestrian infrastructure and accessible public transport
- The environment is very important to the people of Devonport-Takapuna, and efforts to protect it, including planting trees and reducing rubbish are high priorities
What happens next?
All 21 of Auckland’s Local Boards are developing their new 2020 Local Board Plans based on what we heard and other inputs such as the Auckland Plan, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget. Given the extraordinary circumstances we now face, you can expect to see some localised responses to Covid-19 recovery, and some things may need to be put on hold.
The next phase of this consultation will be in July when we come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Devonport-Takapuna Local Board Plan.
We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
