Love local, get vocal and help shape the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board Plan 2020 - 2023

The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board has come up with a three-year plan outlining the key initiatives we want to focus on to help our communities thrive and support the recovery from the impacts of COVID-19.

The plan has five proposed outcomes:

  1. A connected community (page 12)
  2. A strong local economy (page 15)
  3. A protected and enhanced environment (page 18)
  4. Open spaces to enjoy (page 21)
  5. Transport choices (page 24)

Have a look at the plan for more details of what we will do to deliver on these outcomes and take the survey to tell us what's most important and what's missing.

Our 2020 Local Board Plan proposals are open for feedback until Thursday 13 August.

So love local and get vocal about your community by having your say. We'd love to hear from you.

    Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board should include in the next three-year plan. It has been great to hear from you and see your creative ideas and passion for your communities and this special part of Auckland.

    Who we heard from

    We met with local community organisations including our Business Associations and Business Improvement Districts, Restore Hibiscus and Bays Environmental Network groups, and clubs/community groups where we heard from a cross section of people from young people to older adults.

    We heard many of your views face to face at the Birdman Competition in Murrays Bay, and staff from our Community Empowerment team held three inter-generational events. We also heard your ideas and comments here on our online idea’s hub.

    In total we received contributions to the plan from over 140 people.

    What you said

    These are some of the key themes we heard from the feedback we received:

    • you value our environment, open spaces, beaches and waterways and want us to protect our environment from animal and plant pests
    • you want projects implemented from the Town Centre Plans
    • you want ongoing support for our community groups
    • you want the board to advocate for better public transport connections
    • you want playgrounds and parks that are protected with well placed trees or shade sails

    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 2050, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget.

    We have yet to fully determine the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our communities and it may mean some of our plans and aspirations may need to change as a result. Our response will be delivered via the annual budgeting process but the decisions we make will focus on ensuring the benefits for our community.

    In July we will come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Hibiscus and Bays Local Board Plan. We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
