Whau Local Board

Supporting information - local board priorities

Each year we plan the projects and initiatives we will deliver in your local board area. These are based on our 2017 Local Board Plan, which sets our three-year direction. We are seeking your input on our proposals for the 2018/2019 financial year.

a)           3.1 Whau Local Board

b)            Draft message from the Chair

Having recently completed our local board plan 2017, we are now developing the annual budget to deliver the plan for the 2018/2019 year. This covers a wide range of activities including library programmes, parks, events, grants, environmental restoration, neighbourhood development and recreation.

Our future focus is on:

·    town centre developments in Avondale and New Lynn

·    park improvements across the Whau particularly in Blockhouse Bay, Green Bay and Kelston

·    a replacement, expanded Avondale community facility

·    programmes to reduce water pollution and to plant more trees

·    local cycling and walking connections including Te Whau Pathway and the New Lynn to Avondale shared path

·    neighbourhood events and projects in Bollard-Methuen Road, Glenavon and Green Bay

We are also looking how we can encourage more local businesses and jobs as well as looking at what we can do locally to support the Government’s initiative’s to address climate change.

A major focus will be advocating to the Governing Body for funding for a Whau pool and recreation centre in the 10-year Budget.

Please have your say on our proposals through our submission forms and at our meetings. I can assure we do listen.

c)            What we propose in your local board area in 2018/2019

We plan to invest $16.8 million to renew and develop assets and $11.6 million to maintain and operate assets as well as provide the local programmes and initiatives that you’ve told us are important.

d)            Regarding our assets we will:

·    Construct a replacement community facility in Avondale

·    Upgrade playgrounds including Archibald and sports fields at Olympic Park, Blockhouse Bay Recreation Reserve, Brains Park and Ken Maunder Park

·    Develop Te Whau Pathway boardwalks and renew park walkways in Tony Segedin, Blockhouse Bay Recreation, Rizal, Taramea and Waititi reserves

·    Renew park car parks at Golf Road Domain and Wingate Reserve and fences at Blockhouse Bay Recreation and Beach Reserves

We also plan to:

·    strengthen and connect our diverse communities

·    seek increased care and protection for our significant trees

·    work closely with BIDs and foster quality town centre development and improvements to transport centres

·    look at new projects that move Whau to “lower carbon” living

e)            Our key advocacy project

Our advocacy focus is for a new pool and recreation centre in the Whau to fill the gap between neighbouring services in Mount Albert and Henderson.

The facilities in our neighbouring communities are often over crowded already and with large increases in our population expected, suitable land is fast disappearing.

We will advocate to the Governing Body to include funding for a community pool complex, including exercise rooms and two indoor courts, in the 10-year Budget. Due to the high need, we would like funding to be in the first five years of the budget.

f)             What do you think?

Have we got our priorities right?

Do you support building the Whau pool and recreation centre?

What should the board focus on to strengthen and connect our diverse communities?

How should the Board progress increased care and protection for our significant trees?

What would make our town centres and our transport centres outstanding?
