Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $3.7 million to renew and develop assets and $8.8 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 Local Board Plan, which sets our three-year direction for the local board.

Some of the things which have been started in 2021/2022 are:

  • Funding a community-based ecological restoration coordinator to continue resourcing, aligning, and connecting community ecological restoration efforts across the Waitākere Ranges.
  • Restoring public access to local parks by upgrading tracks to protect against kauri dieback.
  • Taking opportunities to create a Māori identity in our parks and facilities through actions, such as naming or renaming, and sharing stories about the area’s heritage through interpretative signs.
  • Rangatū – development of a new neighbourhood park to meet the needs of the growing community in the new Swanson subdivision with a range of facilities, and a new playground and driveway for Armour Bay.
