Key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031

Advocate to Auckland Transport for the links to the Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path

The north-south links to the Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path will improve road safety and reduce congestion by providing off-road access to schools and commuters, and connect multiple communities across the Pourewa Valley.

Pourewa Valley enhancement

We are seeking regional funding from the 10-year budget to help restore and enhance the natural environment of Pourewa Valley as detailed in the Pourewa Valley Integrated Plan.

Hobson Bay catchment wastewater/stormwater separation

We are advocating to the Governing Body to accelerate separation works for the Remuera catchment and for this project to begin following the completion of the Ōrākei/Okahu Bay separation and improve water quality at Hobson Bay.

Boundary expansion of Business Improvement District (BID)

The Glen Innes Business Association is proposing to expand the boundary of the Business Improvement District (BID) across the boundary shared by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki and Ōrākei local boards into the Felton-Mathew Avenue business area.

If the boundary expansion is successful the Glen Innes BID programme would represent about 190 business ratepayers and owners, with total revenue from the BID targeted rate increasing to $250,000 as of 1 July 2021.
