Plans and strategies

Local Board Plans 

Local board plans

Local boards are required to develop a local board plan every three years. . 

The plans are strategic three-year plans for each local board which reflect the priorities and preferences of the community.

The plans will guide:

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

The plans form the basis for development of the annual local board agreements for each financial year. They also inform the development of the council’s Long-term Plan.

Local boards adopted their plans in October 2014.

How we developed the local board plans

The 21 local boards started developing their local board plans in December 2013. 

The plans were built from the bottom up and led by local board members.

They were also informed by extensive, inclusive and innovative engagement with local communities. 

Each plan is the local board’s commitment to enhance community wellbeing and provides a local mandate to work with the governing body and other partners, such as Auckland Transport.

In the course of the development of the 21 new local board plans:

  • we distributed over half a million draft summaries
  • we engaged with 13,600 people across Auckland
  • we received 8129 formal submissions
  • 600 people spoke at hearings.
