Puketāpapa Local Board area

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In the 2024/2025 financial year we plan to invest $2.3 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own) and $10.7 million to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities.

In this long-term plan, local boards have more responsibility for decisions about local assets and services than in previous years.

This includes making decisions about which assets (such as parks and community halls) and services (such as libraries) we should prioritise with funds allocated by the Governing Body.

Some funding decisions are not the responsibility of a local board and in such cases the board can:

  • ask the Governing Body to consider funding from its long-term plan budget
  • ask a council-controlled organisation (such as Auckland Transport) to deliver the service during the 10 years of the long-term plan.

Puketāpapa Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

The Puketāpapa Local Board proposed priorities for their area for the next 10 years. These priorities depend on funding from the Governing Body.

These are to:

  • support our communities with the greatest need and celebrate our cultural diversity
  • focus our investment on parks, facilities and programmes in our growing neighbourhoods
  • work with Kāinga Ora (public housing landlords and urban developers) and Fletcher Living (home builders) to ensure that the growing neighbourhoods of Roskill, Wesley, Waikōwhai and Three Kings are well-planned, well-built and well-serviced
  • support a range of accessible transport options that are easy to access and use by improving our network of cycling and walking paths, and investing in cycling safety and repair programmes
  • invest in climate change response initiatives and restore our streams and the Manukau Harbour coastline
  • determine the future of the whare (house/building) at Monte Cecilia Park and help make the park a more desirable place to visit.

Priorities for Puketāpapa outside of local board decisions

Priorities that require funding outside of a local board need a decision from the Governing Body or a council-controlled organisation.

These priorities are to:

  • repair flood-damaged parks and coastal infrastructure and develop blue-green networks (systems of waterways and parks) in our area
  • create a more natural environment where there are piped awa (rivers) and increase urban ngahere (tree cover) in these areas
  • invest to restore the Manukau Harbour
  • continue funding for sport, recreation and events such as Auckland's cultural festival, World of Cultures, and Matariki (Māori new year)
  • retain funding for the whare in Monte Cecilia Park, a new park in Mt Roskill, toilets at Turner Reserve and Three Kings Quarry, and a regional review of the Aquatic Facilities Network Strategy
  • receive funding for facilities and open spaces to respond to housing growth, such as sports changing rooms in Three Kings Quarry and to extend the pool at Cameron Pool and Leisure Centre
  • retain funding from the Local Board Transport Capital Fund, which allocates money across our 21 local boards according to population size each year
  • improve safety at the Denbigh Avenue/Dominion Road roundabout
  • improve public transport and footpaths, particularly in growing neighbourhoods.

What we propose for Puketāpapa

Planned capital spend to renew and develop assets includes $2.3m for community services. Planned operating spend to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities includes $9.5m for community services, $166,000 for environmental services, $1m for planning services and $1.2m for governance..Key areas of spend for Puketāpapa 2024/2025

For the financial year 2024/2025, we plan to deliver key projects, activities and changes to services.

These are to:

  • invest in opportunities to support local community leadership
  • invest in climate change response initiatives and support volunteer groups working on climate action programmes and projects to restore and protect the local environment
  • consider better ways to invest in facilities and services
  • support initiatives that improve and encourage walking and cycling opportunities
  • help coordinate and support local business groups.
