Information about council's key plans can be found in the See also panel.

Whau 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 Whau Local Board Plan by October 2017. 

Whau Neighbourhood Greenways Plan

The Whau Neighbourhood Greenways Plan outlines the long-term ‘Greenways plan’ (often termed ‘Greenways network’) for the Whau Local Board area.

Greenways plans similar to this have been developed throughout the world, with Portland, Oregon being one of the most successful.

Auckland’s Greenways plans are a series of linked, visionary plans being driven from the ‘ground up’ by local boards with the long-term aim of greatly improving walking, cycling and ecological connections across the region.
