Waitematā Local Board Plan 2017

Every three years each of Auckland’s 21 local boards develops a local board plan, which guides their decisions on local activities and projects.

The three-year plans reflect community priorities, preferences and guide:

  • the local board’s decisions on local activities, projects and facilities
  • the local board’s input into the regional strategies and plans of Auckland Council
  • how the local board works with other agencies that play a key role in local areas including community groups, central government agencies and council-controlled organisations.

Local board plans also form the basis for development of the annual local board agreements for each financial year, and inform the development of Auckland Council's Long-Term Plan, the council's 10-year-budget.

Following consultation, feedback will be considered and the board will adopt the final Waitematā Local Board Plan by October 2017.

Waitematā Greenways Plan

Auckland’s Greenways plans are a series of linked, visionary plans driven by local boards with the long-term aim to improve walking, cycling and ecological connections across the region.

To achieve this, Greenways may cross existing parkland and follow street connections between parks.

The network typically follows natural landforms such as streams and coastlines as well as man-made features such as streets and motorways.

Implementing the Waitematā Greenways Plan will better connect the area to the neighbouring Kaipatiki, Orakei and Albert-Eden Local Board areas and link to regional walking and cycling proposals for the greater Auckland region.
