In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $6.4 million to renew and develop assets and $29.8 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.

  • We continued the restoration of the Western Springs/Te Wai Ōrea wetland and lake edge. This included hosting a community planting day and creating wetland planting trials.
  • We responded to lockdown restrictions by supporting local businesses.
  • We held the Good Citizens’ Awards to recognise the Waitematā community for their outstanding work.
  • We extended the Low Carbon Lifestyles programme to include food and transport.
  • We have developed recreation facilities for all ages at Amey Daldy Park, Home Street Reserve and Outhwaite Park.
  • We supported the Young Enterprise Scheme and Youth Week.
  • We improved the carpark and pathways at Victoria Park and consulted on the Heard Park concept plan.
