Kaipātiki Local Board

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $6.9 million to renew and develop assets and $19.8 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.

Some of the key highlights of what we have delivered and anticipate progressing over the next few months are:

  • Upgrades of our tracks to meet kauri dieback standards, such as those at Eskdale Reserve and the soon to commence Beach Haven Coastal Walkway.
  • Events that bring our communities together, such as Movies in Parks
  • Upgrades to our playspaces, such as the skate park at Marlborough Park, Normanton Reserve and Elliot Reserve.
  • Supporting Pest Free Kaipātiki Restoration Society with its community-led conservation work and ‘greening of Kaipātiki’ strategy.
  • A research project working with businesses in the Wairau Valley to better understand their issues and opportunities and identify appropriate actions for future consideration.

What we propose in your local board area in 2022/2023

We’re not proposing major changes to existing work programmes for 2022/2023 as we continue to deliver the projects identified in our Local Board Plan. However, we have identified some opportunities to strengthen the delivery of our plan as follows:

  • Support our local community organisations to continue to deliver outcomes that provide a sense of belonging and wellbeing for our residents.
  • Ensure our places and spaces are of high quality, accessible and well maintained by continuing to invest in the actions and priorities identified in the Kaipātiki Play and SunSmart Provision Audit.
  • Invest in activities that protect and restore our natural environment, such as a small construction site ambassador programme and continuing to support community-led conservation work.
  • Celebrate and protect our heritage by investigating opportunities to establish a heritage trail in Birkenhead, alongside mana whenua, the Birkenhead Residents Association and the Birkenhead Heritage Society.
  • Investigate opportunities to implement actions and priorities identified in the recently adopted Glenfield Centre Plan 2021.
