Ōrākei Local Board Plan 2017


The Ōrākei Local Board Plan is the guiding document for the local board, and is its strategic three-year plan to outline the communities' priorities and preferences.

Local board plans guide local board activity, funding and investment decisions. They also influence local board input into regional strategies and plans, including the Auckland Plan (the 30-year vision for Auckland), the council’s 10-year Budget (Long-term Plan) and the annual budgets.

A key role of the local board plan is to provide a basis for development of the annual local board agreement for each financial year. Each local board develops annual work programmes alongside adoption of their local board agreement.

  • improving leisure and recreation opportunities on land and water
  • creating new and improved connections for pedestrians and cyclists
  • enhancing the environment of Hobson Bay so it is healthy, safe and pleasant to use

​The Landing Concept Plan

The Landing, on Tāmaki Drive, offers a variety of marine-related sport and recreation activities on the Waitematā Harbour.

The Ōrākei Local Board recently launched The Landing Concept Plan. Complementing the Tāmaki Drive Master Plan, we aim to see The Landing at Okahu Bay become a world-class marine-related sport and recreation area with opportunities for all ages.

The board worked with all the existing clubs and user groups, including Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and Akarana Marine Sports Charitable Trust, to develop this concept plan.

​Ōrākei retail reports

Auckland Council and the Ōrākei Local Board commissioned two reports on successful retail practice in town centres.

The work is focused on the Ōrākei Local Board area. However, many of the lessons can also be applied to other centres across the Auckland region.

Successful town centres

​Successful mainstreet retailing

Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) need to make their town centres not only attractive places, but commercially successful places.

They need to compete effectively, with other town centres and with other retail formats such as shopping malls.

This report provides some useful suggestions and tools to mainstreet retailers to help them succeed in creating loyal customers - ways to attract them, get them to buy, and to come back.

​Tāmaki Drive Masterplan

This masterplan represents a significant collective effort that shows the depth of feeling and pride that many people, both residents and visitors, have for this jewel of Auckland.
