​Papakura Local Board Plan 2020

The Papakura Local Board Plan is the guiding document for the local board, and is its strategic three-year plan to outline the community's 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.

Manurewa Takanini Papakura Integrated Area Plan

In October 2017 both the Manurewa and Papakura Local Boards adopted the Manurewa Takanini Papakura Integrated Area Plan.

This integrated area plan provides a development framework for Manurewa, Takanini and Papakura over the next 30 years.

This plan reinforces the area's role as the gateway to the south, while protecting and improving each centre.

Five key ideas guide the transformation:

  • Protect our future.
  • Love your centre.
  • Celebrate the story.
  • Make way for the people.
  • A voice for youth.

We will monitor the plan and refresh content so it remains relevant to the area's vision.

See the Manurewa Takanini Papakura Integrated Area Plan page for more information.
