We want you to help shape the draft local board plan for Hibiscus and Bays.

Local board plans are strategic three-year plans that are developed based on community feedback.

Local boards can now make more decisions about services and facilities in their area. However, the cost of living and providing these services has gone up, as well as the costs of borrowing money and doing business.

We will need to address these challenges in the local board plan, and this means doing things differently and further prioritising spending.

Five key focus areas

The key aspects of local board plans are:

  • Our people: supporting people in our diverse communities.
  • Our environment: protecting our natural environment.
  • Our community: supporting community participation with our services and infrastructure.
  • Our places: supporting our growth, development, transport and accessibility.
  • Our economy: supporting our economic development.

Integrated into these five strategic areas will be efforts to ensure we contribute to climate mitigation and meet our legal obligations to Māori.

What happens next

  • We have completed the first round of feedback and are using your ideas to put together our draft plan.
  • In mid-2023, we will publish the draft local board plan and seek further feedback on any final thoughts you and the community may have to ensure the plan is heading in the right direction.
  • By 31 October 2023 we will report back any final changes based on your feedback and notify you when the plan is adopted.
