Phase one - Rodney plan update

by Helen Grant,

Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Rodney Local Board should include in their 2020 Local Board Plan. We have enjoyed getting out and about and talking to the community. It's been great to hear your creative ideas and passion for the towns and communities that make up the Rodney Local Board area.

Who we heard from

We held three events in partnership with community organisations, including Federated Farmers Rodney, Kumeu Baptist Youth and the North-West Business Association 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 Coatesville market and Helensville A&P show, as well as at our stalls outside New World in both Kumeu and Warkworth. We also heard from the Wellsford community through their Wellsford Community Voices plan, and gathered ideas here on our online ideas hub.

In total we received contributions to the plan from approximately 180 people.

What you said

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

  • you value our environment, open spaces, beaches and waterways and want us to continue to support programmes that have an environmental focus
  • you want safer roads and footpath connections
  • you want improved public transport options
  • you want the projects in the town centre plans implemented to create attractive community spaces

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 2050, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget.

We have yet to fully determine the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our communities and it may mean some of our plans and aspirations may need to change as a result. Given the extraordinary circumstances we now face, you can expect to see localised responses form part of the draft plan.

In July we will come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Rodney Local Board Plan. We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
