Waiheke plans, agreements and reports

​Waiheke Local Board Plan 2020

The Waiheke 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.

The local board has agreed on the plan for 2020. Read more about the discussion on the Waiheke Local Board plan 2020 site.

This plan identifies opportunities in the Waiheke Local Board area to:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • increase resilience to climate change.

It builds on our existing environment and sustainability initiatives and focuses on eight priority areas from Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland's Climate Plan.

The eight priority areas are:

  • natural environment
  • built environment
  • transport
  • economy, community and coast
  • food
  • te puāwaitanga ō te tātai
  • energy and industry.

We want to make Waiheke a world leader in climate change response by achieving a net positive carbon footprint by 2040.

Our vision is to become a shining example of how to respond to climate change. We want the whole community to take ownership of the plan and its implementation.
