Elected members update

 

Chris Makoare – Attended presentation to Mana Whenua Collective discussions on Waikaraka Park concept plan.  A concern was raised of leaching from the grave yard going into harbour. Also updated that the Magere Bridge underpass walkway was having a change in guard protocols and that consultation was occuring on new foot bridge design.

 

Saffron Toms – Feedback on the management plan for maui dolphins due Monday 19 August and support is given to Staff feedback.  TheManukau Harbour Symposum on 3 August 2019 was excellent.  Thanks to Glenn Boyd and all supporting staff and community members.  With approximately 70 – 80 attendees on the day there was some disappointment as over 90 had registered, however was a wet grey day, with no trains running on Southern network due and one of the Facebook comms had a mismatch between written venue and maplink.  The participation and openiness of expert council staff/depts being available to community was valuable and well received.  Attendees expressed gratitude for symposium despite it being under resourced.  Acknowledge Andrew Chin and Brett Butland from council, Lucy Tukua and Niko Elsen for Panuku, Niklas Erikson Darren Fong, James Fisher, Kerryn Swanepoel from across Auckland. A personal highlight was speaker Buua Redfern’s presentation on the South Auckland Young Environmentals (SAYE) and her groups efforts to connect young pacifika and Māori people into environmental action.  Johnnie Freelands mātauranga Māori concepts applying circular thinking was also very insightful.  Outreach and connection across council and across our communities of interest and place is incredibly important for the Forum and this Symposium helped with progressing this shared awareness.

 

Carrol Elliott - Provided an email update on Mangere Bridge. Noted that drinking and noise problems at night were being managed with police involvement, that there has been aspects of cyclist mis-behaviour on the pedestrian/cyclist underpass so security is adjusting patrolling and plans for the construction of the replacement of the old bridge are out.
