In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $11.6 million to renew and develop assets and $18.6 million to maintain and operate assets as well as provide local services, programmes and initiatives.

What we have been doing in your local board area

Each year we deliver activities and services in your local board area. These are based on our Local Board Plan, which sets our three-year direction for the local board.

  • Street planting, furniture maintenance, and upgrades to community facilities to enhance the character and vibrancy of our towns and villages – such as the work completed in Helensville’s Commercial Road and Warkworth’s new shared space - Te Puawai Kowhai.
  • Continued to deliver construction and upgrades of local play spaces ensuring that they cater to the current and future needs of our communities.
  • Funding community-led pest management and native restoration initiatives, including a coordinator for both east and west Rodney, to support local volunteer groups and drive strong environmental outcomes.
  • Funding of waste minimisation initiatives through the Helensville construction and demolition waste minimisation programme.
  • Supporting community initiatives by funding community events, subsidising the use of our rural halls, and supporting the operational costs of Helensville and Kumeū Arts Centres.
