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.

Gordon Campbell: On How Climate Change Threatens Cricket‘s Future

Well that didn’t last long, did it? Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
