Manurewa 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 $9.5 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own). We also plan to invest $18.7 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.

Manurewa Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

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

They are to:

Priorities for Manurewa 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:

  • achieve fairer funding for the most underfunded boards, making Manurewa the priority
  • allocate fairer funding to ensure all of our public facilities and spaces are welcoming
  • allocate funding to support Te Pae Maumahara / Manurewa War Memorial Park
  • allocate additional funding to plant new trees in our parks and streets
  • clear stormwater sumps (pits that collect rain and storm water) twice a year and clear drain grates more often
  • reinstate local board transport funding to the pre-COVID-19 level of $21 million per year
  • allocate adequate funding to ensure improved road maintenance and road renewals
  • allocate climate action funding to create a walking and cycling connection, including a bridge across the Papakura Stream.

What we propose for Manurewa

Planned capital spend to renew and develop assets is $9.5 million for community services. Planned operating spend to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities is $16.2m for community services, $118,000 for environmental services, $1.2m for planning services and $1.2m for governance.Key areas of spend for Manurewa 2024/2025

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

These are to:

  • continue to support, deliver and fund initiatives that contribute to positive youth development
  • invest in evidence-based projects that focus on crime prevention, safer communities and injury prevention
  • fund and support activities that include older people (especially older migrants) and encourage them to get involved with the community
  • invest in community-led projects and initiatives that build social connections and contribute to climate action and resilience
  • develop a masterplan for Mountfort Park to ensure our open spaces and sports field network meet the needs of our diverse communities
  • provide recreational activities to support people of all ages and abilities to become and keep active
  • investigate community lease options to support Ngāti Tamaoho goals for a cultural hub at Te Pua/Keith Park
  • look to introduce an arts broker programme to nurture creative expression in the community, with a focus on supporting Māori and Pacific creative arts.
