In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $12.8 million to renew and develop assets and $13.9 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 2020 Local Board Plan, which sets our three-year direction for the local board.

In the first half of 2021/2022, we have:

  • Completed the upgrade of playgrounds at Bluebird and Wharepapa reserves and progressed the work to deliver the new local park at Observation Green.
  • Secured and allocated funding to deliver a shared path on Scott Point Sustainable Sports Park, a footpath on Kyle Road, a shared path on Bush Road and towards school zone safety infrastructure on Scott Road.
  • Invested in initiatives that strengthen the resilience of our communities and businesses, including funding the small business 12-month mentoring programme and community resilience planning.
  • Continued to provide support for conservation projects proposed by the community through the Upper Harbour ecology initiatives assistance programme.
  • Successfully advocated for the completion of the long-awaited Gills Road footpath.
