    This consultation closed on 13 August 2020. Thank you for having your say.

    We received 682 pieces of feedback.

    These came from:

    • our online form
    • our hardcopy survey
    • our community partnerships
    • social media channels
    • a Have Your Say event.

    Key feedback themes

    Overall 74% of submitters were supportive of the plan.

    There was strong community support for the following:

      • protecting our natural environment and heritage
      • strengthening our partnership with Maori to create a thriving identity in Papakura
      • providing more opportunities for people to feel connected and lead active, healthy lives
      • creating a well-connected transport system and roads and walking/cycling pathways that make it easy to move around.

    What happens next

    • We adopted the Papakura Local Board Plan 2020 at our November business meeting. You can view a copy of the plan on our website.

    • We will continue to work with our communities to prioritise and incorporate the feedback through our work programmes. We will advocate to the Governing Body on issues facing Papakura.

    Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Papakura Local Board should include in their next three-year plan. It has been great to hear from you and see your creative ideas and passion for your communities and neighbourhoods.

    Who we heard from

    We held two events in partnership with community organisations where we heard from a cross section of the community from young people to seniors. We heard many of your views face to face at the Movies in the Park and Youth fest, we heard from the Papakura Youth Council, and surveyed Papakura Local Board residents through the Auckland People’s Panel as well as our online ideas hub.

    What you said


    These are some of the key themes we heard from all the feedback received:

    • More outdoor play spaces and community events
    • Youth initiatives
    • Protecting our environment

    What happens next?

    All 21 of Auckland’s Local Boards are developing their new 2020 Local Board Plans based on what we heard and other inputs such as the Auckland Plan, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget. Given the extraordinary circumstances we now face, you can expect to see some localised responses to Covid-19 recovery, and some things may need to be put on hold.


    The next phase of this consultation will be in July when we come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Papakura Local Board Plan.

    We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
