In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $10.3 million to renew and develop assets and $15.7 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.

  • Support for local economic recovery from the effects of COVID-19 by continuing to fund a Local Economic Development Broker to facilitate local access to business development resources and support business in leveraging opportunities.
  • Funding community-led pest management initiatives.
  • Funding of waste minimisation initiatives through Waiuku Zero Waste and advocacy for new waste diversions facilities for the south.
  • Supporting local community empowerment and resilience through local grants, a new community partnership funding approach, the Arts Broker role and the placemaking and safety programme.
  • Continuing to deliver local park and recreational facility renewal projects so that they adequately accommodate current use and anticipate future needs.
