Whau Local Board

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

In 2022/2023 we plan to invest $16.3 million to renew and develop assets and $14.9 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.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and public feedback, we focused on essential projects only while operating on an emergency budget.

We continued investment in maintenance, improvement and furnishing of our parks, open spaces and pathways across the Whau. An upgraded New Lynn Community Centre reopened in February 2021.

The regeneration of Avondale progressed with stage one of the pavement project done and commencement of public consultation on how the new multi-facility in the heart of the town centre might best look, feel and serve a rapidly-growing community.

The newly-formed Pasifika Komiti participants reported stronger feelings of inclusion, belonging and ownership in the Whau.

There was ongoing collaboration on climate change actions.
