Regards to the current situation with sport and future for the code.

Currently the code have not received clear information with some outstanding council projects from 2012, where local board funded the dugouts and funded the move of the lights, which is in the way of one of the diamonds.  Local board staff Jill Pierce will collate updated information from Council officers.


Meeting many sports codes to seek our local community participation and barriers that may be a effecting the sport participation.  Working with the codes to help with sport structures, codes plans where possible to meet our community needs.


Lovelock Track

Renovations and update coming to an end.

This track has a long history it is the "The legendary track used by Lydiard, Snell, Magee, Baillie, Halberg and others".  For Puketapapa Local board it is one sporting asset we should be proud to have in our community that holds a legendary history for the sporting athletes.

I will put in a sport and recreation proposal to the local board to have an event for the re-opening of this track due to the significance and histories held and attach this event to other sporting needs that can be met. The Lovelock Track, in Mount Roskill. Opened on 15 April 1961, Five world records have been set on the track.




Still having a problem with Auckland Transport, an elderly resident who has given in a doctor’s certificate in December and had a reply January the Auckland Transport cannot mow her berm; she is 82 years of age widow.  I contacted Auckland Transport in January 2014 who mentioned the AT have now considered periodically cutting berms, in February  she received another letter without specific outcome to her berm and another standard letter.  This letter does not give dates and clear information for the resident to know what and when her berms will be cut.

I will call AT to get more information of the letter.
