​Whau Local Board Plan 2020

The Whau 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.

​Whau Neighbourhood Greenways Plan

The Whau Neighbourhood Greenways Plan outlines the long-term 'greenways plan' (often termed 'greenways network') for the Whau Local Board area.

Greenways plans similar to this have been developed throughout the world, with Portland, Oregon being one of the most successful.

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