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

We will:

  • continue to work with the Papakura Commercial Project Group to plan and support development of the town centre and immediate surrounds, to develop Papakura’s future as a vibrant metropolitan centre
  • invest in community-led arts, events and multi-generational activities, which use and celebrate our parks and open spaces and promote health, movement and discovery for all age groups. We want to bring people together to meet and have fun at no cost
  • work in partnership with Māori to develop an annual Waitangi Day event in Papakura, as well as opportunities for Matariki and Māori Language Week Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori celebrations and activities.

Key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031

We will:

  • advocate to Auckland Transport to develop additional park-and-ride capacity, an expanded bus interchange and other actions such as an on-demand bus service, to manage car park demand at the Papakura train station
  • advocate to the Governing Body for additional funding, including the reinstatement of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund, to continue the development of the shared walking and cycling pathways from Elliot Street to Pescara Point and the Hunua Trail.
