Waitematā Local Board Plan 2017

The Waitematā 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.

​Waitematā Greenways Plan

Auckland's Greenways plans are a series of linked, visionary plans driven by local boards with the long-term aim of improving walking, cycling and ecological connections across the region.

To achieve this, greenways may cross existing parkland and follow street connections between parks.

The network typically follows natural landforms such as streams and coastlines, as well as man-made features such as streets and motorways.

Implementing the Waitematā Greenways Plan will better connect the area to the neighbouring Kaipātiki, Ōrākei and Albert-Eden Local Board areas, and link to regional walking and cycling proposals for the greater Auckland region.
