    Thanks for your feedback on the draft Kaipātiki Local Board Plan.

    We received 156 submissions, including 88 online submissions, 65 hard copy forms and emails, and 3 pieces of social media feedback. We also received feedback on our plan at a World Café-style event on August 5th and a Have Your Say hearing-style event on August 19th. These provided valuable insights from individuals and groups across our area.

    Adopting the Kaipātiki Local Board Plan 2020-2023

    The final Kaipātiki Local Board Plan 2020-2023 was adopted at our October 21st business meeting. The agenda, minutes, and text for the plan are on akhaveyoursay. The final plan, including formatting and photographs, will be uploaded to the Kaipātiki Local Board page on the Auckland Council website early next year.

    The five plan outcomes are:

    1. Te Whai Wāhitanga me te Oranga | Belonging and wellbeing
    2. Te Taiao | Environment
    3. Ngā Wāhi me ngā Takiwā | Places and Spaces
    4. Te Ikiiki me ngā Tūhononga | Transport and Connections
    5. Te Āheinga me te Taurikura | Opportunity and Prosperity

    What’s next: Auckland Council’s 10-year budget

    As well as helping us develop our local board plan for the next three years, and the work programmes to deliver on it, your feedback also helps us to advocate to the Governing Body on issues facing Kaipātiki.

    You’re welcome to register to have your say on the 10-year budget (Long Term Plan), where we’ll be advocating on behalf of Kaipātiki for:

    • implementing the Birkenhead War Memorial Park Masterplan, with the first project being to develop a new multi-purpose facility and improved aquatic play space
    • implementing measures to minimise the spread of kauri dieback disease, including bush track upgrades, hygiene procedures and training for volunteers and contractors, and support for installing and using hygiene stations
    • expanding investment to improve water quality and biodiversity in our waterways, ponds and marine environment, particularly within the catchment of the Wairau Estuary
    • delivering the Northcote redevelopment as an excellent example of urban regeneration that supports a successful and integrated community
    • continuing improvement to the bus and ferry network serving Kaipātiki through cheaper ferry and bus fares, increased frequency of the ferry service, and more buses going to more destinations more often.

    You can help support our advocacy items by having your say on the 10-year budget (Long Term Plan) from 22 February to 22 March next year.

    Nga mihi,
    John Gillon, Chair
    Kaipātiki Local Board

    Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Kaipātiki Local Board should include in their next three-year plan. It has been great to hear from you and see your creative ideas and passion for your communities and neighbourhoods.

    Who we heard from

    We held meetings with key stakeholders representing youth, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, seniors, and worked closely with Kaipātiki Community Facilities Trust. We distributed postcards of our Local Board Plan outcomes and had people return them to us with their feedback. We a great deal of engagement on the AK Have Your Say page, where people were able to contribute ideas and discuss them with one another. In total we received over 180 contributions from around 110 people.

    What you said

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

    • Providing good transport options, including cycling, walking, and accessible public transport is important to our community
    • Incorporating and learning from Māori knowledge and culture is supported
    • Public space like parks, playgrounds, and facilities are important to Kaipātiki

    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, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget. Given the extraordinary circumstances we now face, you can expect to see some localised responses to Covid-19 recovery, and some things may need to be put on hold.

    The next phase of this consultation will be in July when we come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Kaipātiki Local Board Plan.

    We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
