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

We will:

  • support business partnerships to help the local economy recover from the effects of COVID-19
  • invest in initiatives that can help communities build awareness of how our lifestyles can minimise our emissions, and how we can help support the region’s aspiration of becoming zero-waste by 2040, and zero-emissions by 2050
  • improve local youth leadership capacity and participation on local matters by working closer with youth
  • provide additional investment and attention to improve the car park and accessibility to onsite facilities at Seaside Park
  • deliver Massey Homestead full refurbishment by advocating for more resources for structural improvements
  • maintain and improve facility networks – such as playgrounds, open spaces and council facilities to meet local needs of all ages and abilities.

  • seek ongoing investment support from the 10-year budget to continue the delivery of the Māngere Mountain Education Trust's education programmes to visiting local schools and community groups
  • request Government Body funding to reinstate the local board transport capital fund to pre-emergency budget levels through the 10-year budget
  • advocate to the Governing Body to approve budget for the Māngere East Precinct and initiatives to enhance this centre as a thriving and liveable community
  • advocate to the Governing Body to allocate long-term funding for the Ōtāhuhu Portage route project as a priority -the site is of national significance in terms of history and culture, with enormous potential to make the area accessible and connected for local and international visitors.
