Adopting the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2020-2023

The final Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2020-2023 was adopted at our October business meeting. The agenda and minutes from the business meeting are available here and you can view a copy of the plan online.

The six plan outcomes are:

  1. A confident and sustainable local economy
  2. We are building well connected, engaged and active communities
  3. Protecting our environment and heritage for future generations
  4. Celebrating our unique Tangata Whenua and Pasifika identities
  5. Our children and young people grow and succeed
  6. We thrive and belong in safe, healthy communities
