Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area

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

In the 2024/2025 financial year we plan to invest $4.8 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own). We also plan to invest $22.5 million to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities.

In this long-term plan, local boards have more responsibility for decisions about local assets and services than in previous years.

This includes making decisions about which assets (such as parks and community halls) and services (such as libraries) we should prioritise with funds allocated by the Governing Body.

Some funding decisions are not the responsibility of a local board and in such cases the board can:

  • ask the Governing Body to consider funding from its long-term plan budget
  • ask a council-controlled organisation (such as Auckland Transport) to deliver the service during the 10 years of the long-term plan.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board proposed priorities for its area for the next 10 years. These priorities depend on funding from the Governing Body.

They are to:

  • explore how we can better use our community facilities and assets to reduce growing maintenance costs
  • work together with Māori on projects that support their goals and implement shared governance arrangements
  • work with locals to help build resilience and prepare for the impacts of climate change
  • support new ways to deliver events, programmes and activities that reflect and celebrate our diverse communities
  • help strengthen the skills and abilities of community groups, facilitate opportunities for local leaders and secure sustainable funding sources.

Priorities for Māngere-Ōtāhuhu outside of local board decisions

Priorities that require funding outside of a local board need a decision from the Governing Body or a council-controlled organisation.

These priorities are to:

  • urge the Council Group (Auckland Council, Ports of Auckland and council-controlled organisations like Auckland Transport and Watercare) and central government to allocate resources fairly to help our recovery from extreme weather events and resilience to future disasters
  • ask the Governing Body to retain and increase the Local Board Transport Capital Fund
  • allocate resources more fairly, including the distribution of targeted environment rates
  • ask for further local decision-making opportunities that allow locals to have a greater say in transportation, climate change and water quality-related decisions
  • ask the Governing Body to ensure adequate infrastructure is in place before approving housing intensification (growth).

What we propose for Māngere-Ōtāhuhu

Planned capital spend to renew and develop assets is $4.8m for community services. Planned operating spend to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities is $19.9m for community services, $301,000 for environmental services, $1.2m for planning services and $1.1m for governance.Key areas of spend for Māngere-Ōtāhuhu 2024/2025

For the financial year 2024/2025, we plan to deliver key projects, activities and changes to services.

These are to:

  • strengthen partnerships with local mana whenua through projects like Te Kete Rukuruku, and finish improvements to the David Lange Park playground
  • deliver community climate initiatives such as 'low carbon lifestyles', and Māngere Bike Hub with our community partners. (Visit Auckland Transport Bike Hubs for more information.)
  • deliver a community-driven safety action plan aimed at tackling anti-social behaviour and addressing local safety concerns
  • improve employment and economic opportunities through our local economic broker programme (where we use a broker to connect businesses, encourage growth and enhance community wellbeing)
  • support community-led activities (like sports and community celebrations) at our parks and facilities using our community grants.
