That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)            supports the Thriving Communities Policy, which empowers our community, as adopted by local boards and the governing body last year.

d)           believes that Local Board Services have a key role in any accountability system as referenced in resolution c) above, noting that such accountability should address:

i)             the local boards’ role and councils role;

ii)            transparency, resource allocation, risk analysis, resource capture, innovation, capacity development, need assessment and evaluation; and

iii)           professional standards of delivery.
