In the 2024/2025 financial year we plan to invest $5 million to renew and develop assets (resources we own). We also plan to invest $18.3 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.

Upper Harbour Local Board priorities for 2024-2034

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

They are to:

  • look at options to sell land or introduce a targeted rate so we can invest in a new multi-purpose library in Albany
  • plan and develop a new public toilet at the Whenuapai Town Park
  • create a connected community and vibrant destination in Albany where people want to live, visit, shop, work and connect
  • continue supporting our local community organisations and volunteers to deliver outcomes that provide a sense of belonging, wellbeing and resilience for residents.

Priorities for Upper Harbour 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.

We will advocate to the Governing Body for:

  • fairer funding for Upper Harbour
  • funding for a suitable library facility in Albany
  • enough funding to ensure our existing assets are well-maintained
  • appropriate investment in North Harbour Stadium to ensure it is a well-used, multipurpose facility that meets the needs of the growing North Auckland community
  • planning and investment in infrastructure to develop and support quality open spaces in areas impacted by growth and intensification like Whenuapai, Hobsonville Point and Albany
  • retention and increase of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

Planned capital spend to renew and develop assets is $5m for community services. Planned operating spend to maintain and operate assets and deliver local activities is $16.3m for community services, $363,000 for environmental services, $764,000 for planning services and $931,000 for governance.Key areas of spend for Upper Harbour 2024/2025
