Love local, get vocal and help shape your Local Board Plan 2020

The Upper Harbour Local Board has created a three-year plan outlining the key initiatives we want to focus on to help our communities thrive and support the recovery from the impacts of COVID-19. Now we need your help to check if we’ve got it right.

Our plan has five proposed outcomes:

  1. Empowered, connected and resilient Upper Harbour communities (page 11 of plan)
  2. An efficient and accessible travel network (page 14)
  3. Healthy and active communities (page 17)
  4. Our unique natural environment is protected and enhanced (page 20)
  5. A resilient local economy (page 22)

Have a look at the plan for more details of what we will do to deliver on these outcomes and take the survey to tell us what's most important and what's missing.

Our 2020 Local Board Plan proposals are open for feedback until Thursday 13 August.

So love local and get vocal about your community by having your say. We'd love to hear from you.

    Thank you to everyone who shared ideas, insights and gave feedback on what the Upper Harbour Local Board should include in their next three-year plan. It has been great to hear from you and see your creative ideas and passion for your communities and neighbourhoods.

    Who we heard from

    We held a Have Your Say event where the Board heard from local organisations from across Upper Harbour. We held meetings with key stakeholders representing youth, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, seniors, as well as mangers of our community houses. We distributed postcards of our Local Board Plan outcomes and had people return them to us with their feedback. We a great deal of engagement on the AK Have Your Say page, where people were able to contribute ideas and discuss them with one another. In total we received over 140 contributions from around 75 people.

    What you said

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

    • Developing recreational facilities at Scott Point
    • Improving pedestrian and cycle infrastructure across Upper Harbour
    • Supporting a recycling centre in Upper Harbour

    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, Long Term Plan, and Annual Budget.

    Given the extraordinary circumstances we now face, you can expect to see some localised responses to Covid-19 recovery, and some things may need to be put on hold.

    The next phase of this consultation will be in July when we come back to you with an opportunity to have your say on the draft Upper Harbour Local Board Plan.

    We will be back in touch when phase two opens.
