LTP 2015-2025 Consultation: Local Board Insert

Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board

Every three years council reviews its 10-year Long-term Plan. We need your input to make sure we get this right. In this insert we focus on local issues specific to the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki community.

Message from the Chair

Simon Randall

The challenges we face in a constrained environment means that working together and being clear about our priorities is essential. Financial constraint also presents us with opportunities to do things better and smarter. The local board will look to achieve more for our community by working with community organisations to build stronger partnerships and build their capacity to do the good work that they do.

We received a large amount of feedback from the community during the development of the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Plan 2014 and this proposed budget reflects this community input. We look forward to hearing what you think about this draft Long-term Plan.

 

What you have told us

Through the consultation process on the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Plan 2014, you told us that you want a healthy natural environment as well as great built structures and urban amenity, excellent public and private transport supported by good walking and cycling opportunities, parks which all of our community can enjoy, jobs, economic growth, and strong, thriving communities.

What we propose to do

Over the last three years together we have achieved a lot. We have delivered significant capital projects such as the Glen Innes Music and Arts Centre and the Onehunga Foreshore Restoration. Ongoing projects associated with Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) are transforming roads and bring significant benefits to the community, such as the new Panmure Interchange. We have invested in environmental projects, partnering with the community in both events and community projects. We have also invested in a number of concept plans and other planning documents so that our many parks and open spaces can accommodate our growing and diverse community.

Councilís shared governance model means local boards make decisions on local issues, activities and the use of local facilities. Local boards develop a three-year local board plan as the basis of annual funding agreements with Councilís governing body (the mayor and the councillors). Local boards also advocate to the governing body on larger scale investments, regional programmes and policy issues such as rates.

 

To keep rates affordable, we need to plan sensibly for the future. The following proposals have been prioritised for funding in the Long-term Plan 2015-2025:

2015/2016

∑††††† Continued development of Sir Woolf Fisher Park ($1.9mill)

∑††††† Environmental restoration projects ($150k)

∑††††† Community grants and events ($160k)

∑††††† Investigation of a possible Tāmaki BID (Business Improvement District) ($25k)

∑††††† Improved accessibility and increased use of Panmure Hall ($50k)

2016 Ė 2025

∑††††† Development of Waikaraka Park ($1.2m)

∑††††† Community grants and events ($160k)

∑††††† Streams, waterways and environmental projects ($150k)

∑††††† Investigation of a possible Penrose BID (Business Improvement District) ($25k)

∑††††† Implement a community safety plan in our area ($60k)

∑††††† Increase partnership and participation in sport and recreation ($90k)

∑††††† Support communities to enhance and celebrate our neighbourhoods and public spaces ($100k)

Other proposals

We want to hear from you on initiatives we should be advocating for that are currently unfunded.

∑††††† More investment in the greenways network - a walking, cycling and ecological pathway connecting people to local destinations.

∑††††† The cluster of community buildings in Glen Innes (Library, CAB, Plunket, Marae, and community hall) is an important community asset. We require investment to improve this cluster to better be able to serve the community.

What do you think?

Do we have the right mix and types of local initiatives?

 

Are there any initiatives that should not be funded, or new ones that should be funded?
