Make sure you register your dogs by July 31 and, as well as receiving a $15 discount, you could win a mystery holiday for two to Australia! Please be aware that late registrations could result in a $200 fine. Every dog over the age of three months must be registered every year. In processing registrations, we are legally required to ask owners to state their age. This is necessary for security reasons, to distinguish between residents who share the same name and initials.
Wharf and boat ramp upgrading programme
With spring just around the corner, many wharf and boat ramp developments can be seen around the city - great news for boaties and beach users. We’ve recently finished widening the Browns Bay beach access and installed new hand-railing at Murrays Bay. We’re also busy building the Hinemoa (Birkenhead) boat ramp. Upcoming projects (all to be completed in August) include stage two of the Torpedo Bay boat ramp upgrade, extending the Takapuna boat ramp, building a small boat ramp and groyne at Milford, and lengthening Waiake Beach boat ramp.
Fire-fighters get a boost
We‘re spending more than $1 million over the coming year on water supply improvements and hydrant maintenance to boost the city’s fire-fighting capability. Larger watermains will be installed in Takapuna and Milford to meet fire-fighting requirements, and improvements will be made to water flows in the elevated areas of the city, including Glenvar, Pinehill and Birkenhead.
Plans to set up our Project FaB (Ferries and Buses) public transport forum are progressing well. A newsletter aimed at getting feedback on the idea will go out in September to interested local groups, residents and businesses. The aim of the new forum is to create an opportunity for community input into the public transport planning process for the city. It will bring together representatives of local ferry and bus service operators and the Auckland Regional Council with public transport users and community and business organisations. The forum's first open meeting will be held in October when a range of issues will be up for discussion. If you would like to go on the forum's information mailing list contact transport planner Alison Dunatov on 486 8400 ext 8771.
Drop-in meetings now on
