Phase Two - Upper Harbour Local Board Update
Thanks for your feedback on the draft Upper Harbour Local Board Plan.
We received 274 submissions, including 156 online submissions, 114 hard copy forms and emails, and 4 pieces of social media feedback. We also received feedback on our plan at our two Have Your Say hearing-style event on July 16th and August 6th. These provided valuable insights from individuals and groups across our area.
Adopting the Upper Harbour Local Board Plan 2020-2023
The final Upper Harbour Local Board Plan 2020-2023 was adopted at our October 15th business meeting. The agenda, minutes, and text for the plan are on akhaveyoursay. The final plan, including formatting and photographs, will be uploaded to the Upper Harbour Local Board page on the Auckland Council website early next year.
The five plan outcomes are:
- Empowered, connected and resilient Upper Harbour communities
- An efficient and accessible travel network
- Healthy and active communities
- Our unique natural environment is protected and enhanced
- A resilient local economy
What’s next: Auckland Council’s 10-year budget
As well as helping us develop our local board plan for the next three years, and the work programmes to deliver on it, your feedback also helps us to advocate to the Governing Body on issues facing Upper Harbour.
You’re welcome to register to have your say on the 10-year budget (Long Term Plan), where we’ll be advocating on behalf of Upper Harbour for:
- Prioritisation of investment for open space development in areas where there is a known need and gap in the network, such as:
- Scott Point Sustainable Sports Park
- a sub-regional indoor court facility in the Upper Harbour Local Board area.
- A long term solution for a library
- Acquisition of Bomb Point, Hobsonville
- Adequate levels of renewals funding to ensure assets are well maintained
You can help support our advocacy items by having your say on the 10-year budget (Long Term Plan) from 22 February to 22 March next year.
