Adopting the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board Plan 2020-2023

The final Ōtara-Papatoetoe 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 final plan, including formatting and photographs, will be uploaded to the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board webpage on the Auckland Council website early next year.

The six plan outcomes are:

  1. Transform Manukau
  2. Prosperous local economy
  3. A thriving, inclusive and safe community
  4. Parks and facilities that meet our people’s needs
  5. Sustainable, healthy natural environment
  6. Connected area and easy to get around

One of our roles is to advocate on behalf of the local community, and to do that we need your support when we ask the Governing Body (Councillors) to respond to issues Ōtara-Papatoetoe communities.

You’re welcome to register for local updates, including a reminder to have your say on the 10-year budget (Long Term Plan), where we’ll be advocating on behalf of Ōtara-Papatoetoe for:

  • Promote more reinvestment in the Transform Manukau area
  • Make Otara a “transform area” and make use of the opportunity coming up with Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) moving its south campus to Manukau. There will be amazing residential and commercial areas and combined with existing council owned community facilities and assets, Ōtara can be transformed.
  • New civic and community hub in Papatoetoe
  • Fit for purpose sports fields and community facilities that serve our local people
  • Finalise local alcohol policy and reduce harm from alcohol
  • Regional action and investment to reduce, minimise and manage waste
  • Affordable, warm and safe homes: Support the inclusion of social, affordable and well insulated housing in the local area
  • Improve employment and training and entrepreneurship opportunities in the southern areas for young people
  • Prioritise public transport through ‘route protection’, safer roads and connectivity

You can help by supporting our advocacy items in your feedback from 22 February to 22 March next year.
