Kaipātiki public and business meetings

Monthly business meetings

The monthly board business meetings are where the board makes decisions.

These meetings are open to the public.

They start at 10am and are held at:

Kaipātiki Local Board Office at 90 Bentley Avenue, Glenfield

Local board business meetings are held monthly and the public are welcome to attend. Anyone can ask to speak at a local board business meeting. As an individual or representative of a community group, this is your opportunity to raise issues with your local board.

Community forums 

Community forums are meetings held bi-monthly that are specifically set up to hear from the community. They and are a good place to express your opinion to your elected representatives.

When and where they are held

Community forums are typically held on the fourth Wednesday of the month starting at 6pm and held at the following locations:

Kaipātiki Local Board meeting room, 90 Bentley Avenue, Glenfield

Birkenhead Library, Corner of Rawene Road and Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead

Bayview Community Centre, 72 Bayview Road, Bayview

Beach Haven Community House, 130 Beach Haven Road, Beach Haven

Kaipātiki Local Board meeting room, 90 Bentley Avenue, Glenfield

Each group is allocated 10 minutes for a presentation. This presentation must be submitted at least seven clear working days before the date of the meeting concerned, and has been subsequently approved by the Chairperson.  

You can talk about issues facing you or your community group or give updates about your group's activities. You are allowed a maximum of two presenters, although you're welcome to have as many as you like attend in support.

The presentation is delivered in a public setting and is recorded on the public record in official minutes.

The board does not make any resolutions about funding decisions.


Speaking at public local board meetings

If you'd like to speak at a local board meeting contact the local board office at least 7 days in advance to let us know:

A speaker may not speak about a matter that:

  • has already been considered and decided
  • has a separate public hearings or consultation process attached to it
  • is subject to a quasi-judical process
  • is outside of the scope or functions of that local board or committee.

The chairperson can refuse your request if:

  • it does not comply with the Kaipātiki Local Board Standing Orders
  • there is insufficient time to receive the deputation
  • there is a more appropriate committee or person to receive the deputation
  • it is offensive, vexatious or repetitive.
For more information on ways you can speak at a Local Board meeting, see Speak at a Local Board meeting.


Purpose of workshops

Local board workshops focus on oversight and delivery of projects in their work programme.

This includes topics like events, and renewing assets across the local board area.

The local board does not make decisions at these workshops.

Workshops in Kaipātiki are open to the public and we publish a record of what was discussed and presented at the workshop. Due to COVID-19, some workshop items have been cancelled and replaced with information instead being circulated via email to Local Board Members. To maintain public oversight of these items, a copy of the workshop documents are included below.
