Richard Hills - A Positive Voice for the Shore

Richard Hills is proud to announce his intention to stand as a Council candidate for the North Shore Ward.

Hills was born and raised on the Shore, he has wide connections across the community, which makes him a unique asset to the council table as the Shore’s representative.

“I will work with you and for you, to ensure our rates are spent efficiently, protect what you value and plan responsibly for future generations,” Hills says.

Hills is a two term Kaipatiki Local Board member and his commitment to providing for his community can be exemplified in projects he has helped to secure.

Marlborough Park Hall upgrade is his most recent achievement, providing the first Youth Facility on the North Shore - a place for our young people to call their own.

The final design was a result of student panels and community surveys, the inclusion of ideas is a reflection of the commitment Hills has to providing for the community.

“I will advocate for every one of all ages and backgrounds in our community, with an extra focus on children and young people, we need to include youth in the decisions we make for the future and increase engagement at all levels”

As a Local Board member, Hills portfolios are Community Development, Transport and Infrastructure, working to initiate projects such as the Beach Haven Ferry, the upcoming Glenfield Road and Northcote to Takapuna Safe cycle route plans and park and sports field upgrades.



“I will continue to advocate for better public transport, cheaper fares, more walking and cycling initiatives including Skypath and secure Rail to the Shore,” he says.

Hills is dedicated to the health, education and wellbeing of youth, and takes an active role in this sector - outside of his local government role.

“I have been encouraged to stand by a wide variety of people and groups from across the Shore who are looking for a positive voice and a fresh perspective to represent our community and rebuild the trust in council.”
