In the 2024/2025 financial year we plan to invest $5.6 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own). We also plan to invest $16.7 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.

Rodney Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

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

We will advocate to the Governing Body for:

  • increased funding for resilient rural roads from Auckland Transport including:
  • sensitive planning to protect and preserve our environment and prevent damage to highly biodiverse natural landscapes
  • effective resources and enforced environmental compliance from both public and private organisations to protect our environment.

What we propose for Rodney

Planned capital spend to renew and develop assets is $5.6m for community services. Planned operating spend to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities is $14.5m for community services, $554,000 for environmental services, $331,000 for planning services and $1.3m for governance..Key areas of spend for Rodney 2024/2025

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

These are to:

  • deliver new and/or improved playground and play spaces in Goodall Reserve, Te Hana Reserve, Rautawhiri Park and Riverhead War Memorial Park
  • support communities to develop local community emergency leadership groups and emergency action-planning
  • provide additional activities and programmes for children and young people to encourage use of our libraries, halls and open spaces
  • continue supporting our local arts centres in Helensville and Kumeū and look to extend arts experiences to other parts of Rodney
  • continue supporting community groups and mana whenua to restore biodiversity and keep our waterways clean and healthy
  • support and educate the community to minimise waste by turning it into resources
  • develop and refurbish toilet facilities in Glasgow Park, Dinning Road Esplanade Reserve and Port Albert Recreation Reserve
  • develop pathway connections in Green Road Park.
