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

  • investigate options for Te Rangi Hiroa Reserve nursery site, with a focus on community-led sustainability and food initiatives
  • progress initiatives such as street tree planting and develop a community-led climate action plan to lower Henderson-Massey’s carbon footprint.

Key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031

We will advocate to the Governing Body:

  • to retain funding in the 10-year budget to progress the work on aquatic provision in the northwest
  • to reinstate Auckland Transport’s Local Board Transport Capital Fund to pre-emergency budget levels for all local boards and restore the funding formally allocated by local boards before the budget was adopted
  • for funding in the 10-year budget to progress the proposed permanent facility for Waitākere Outrigger Canoe (Waka Ama) Club in Te Atatū South (consultation, detailed design, consenting and a detailed estimate) - his would help address the gap in regional support for Waka Ama, one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s fastest growing sports
  • to fund the Waitangi at Waititi event as part of the regional event programme given the significant number of Aucklanders from across the region who attend the event.
  • We will also advocate to central government and the Governing Body for funding in the 10-year budget for the remaining sections of Te Whau Pathway, not covered by the “shovel-ready” central government project funding, to be completed.

Other focus points

We will:

  • ensure community spaces cater for our diverse communities and are accessible and welcoming places
  • enhance a sense of belonging and safety in our town centres and community spaces
  • continue providing quality parks and playgrounds, libraries, community and recreation facilities, and events.
