Phase one - Māngere-Ōtāhuhu plan update
Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu 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 six events in partnership with community organisations including Do Good Feel Good and the Karen Society – Youth Group, Bluespur Consulting – who hosted four community fono with us and held one to one conversations with the faith based groups in Mangere-Otahuhu area where we heard from a cross section of the community from young people to seniors. We heard many of your views face to face at the Portage Route Family Crossing Festival, Otahuhu Family festival and Local Board movies in the park. We heard from residents through the Auckland People’s Panel as well as our online ideas hub. In addition to that we held a hui for our Maori /Maatawaaka communities at Mataatua Marae and a Southern Boards Mana Whenua hui held at Ngati Otara Marae.
What you said
These are some of the key themes we heard from all the feedback received:
- Local Economy
- Youth and Children
- Maori and Pasifika
- Connectivity and Facilities
- Environment and Heritage
In total we received over 603 contributions from around 248 people.
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 Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan. We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
