Draft Auckland Plan Invitation

Draft Auckland Plan Invitation

The Mayor’s vision for Auckland is to make it the world’s most liveable city. The Auckland Plan is a 30- to 50-year strategy to deliver this vision and will describe how and when our communities will grow and develop into the future.

The draft Auckland Plan is now open for submissions until 4pm, Tuesday, 25 October 2011 and the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board wants you to have your say on this vitally important document for the region and our area.

The draft Auckland Plan builds on the Auckland Unleashed discussion document. The Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board hosted community meetings on Auckland Unleashed in May and now we want to talk with our communities on the draft Auckland Plan, again through a number of community meetings.

We warmly invite you to come to any of these meetings:

• Monday, 26 September, 6 - 8pm, Glen Innes Community Hall, 96 Line Rd
• Thursday, 6 October, 6 - 8pm, Onehunga Community House, 83 Selwyn St
• Friday, 7 October, 12 - 2pm, Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Office, 7-13 Pilkington Road, (next door to Panmure Library)
• Thursday, 13 October, 10am - 12pm, Onehunga Community House, 83 Selwyn St

We will make a very brief presentation on the draft Auckland Plan from a Maungakiekie-Tamaki perspective. We are very interested in hearing about what community members think of the draft Plan so we will be available to take part in small group discussions. We will also explain the very simple process of making a submission.
