What we propose in your local board area in 2021/2022

Community-led COVID-19 recovery initiatives

Resilience in our community is our top priority. COVID-19 has forced all of us to adapt to new ways of living and working.

We are committed to supporting our community to continue to deliver programmes, projects and initiatives in new innovative ways.

Māori responsiveness

We will continue to work with mana whenua to deliver projects, and explore co-governance and co-management opportunities, specifically at Puhinui Reserve.

Progress the Manukau Sports Bowl master plan and Papatoetoe facilities gap analysis

We intend progress these two projects plans.

This will give us a better understanding of what facilities and amenities you would like to see in the local board area.

Key areas of spend

Key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031

Sportsfield and lighting upgrade: Rongomai and East Tamaki Reserve

Our sportsfields are in use for formal and informal recreation all year round. We need better fields to provide quality surfaces for our communities.

We will advocate for regional funding for sportsfield and lighting upgrades at Rongomai and East Tamaki Reserve.

Reinstatement of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund to pre-Covid-19 levels

We will advocate to the Governing Body alongside other local boards for the Local Board Transport Capital fund to be reinstated to the pre-COVID-19 level of $21 million per annum.

We will also advocate for previously allocated funding of $38 million – lost through the Emergency Budget 2020/2021 process – to be fully restored.

This funding pool is a major contributor to delivering local transport projects.
