Albert-Eden and Puketāpapa local boards are keen to hear from residents on a range of priorities and projects they are committing to and advocating for as a part of Auckland Council’s 10-year Budget. These priorities will shape our neighbourhoods now and in the future.
As part of this consultation, the local boards want to know what you think of their priorities and key local advocacy projects for the 2018/19 financial year.
Priorities for Albert-Eden Local Board
- Provide funding to the community to identify, maintain and care for notable trees
- Work with neighbouring local boards and community groups to develop joint management plans for Te Auaunga / Oakley Creek and Waititiko / Meola Creek
- Investigate the creation of a cycling and walking connection between St Lukes and Greenlane train station
- Support local businesses to implement sustainable practices, such as alternatives to putting fat and oil down drains, or reducing plastic bag usage
- Advocate for a replacement aquatic centre in Albert-Eden and for an investigation into a replacement indoor multi-sport facility at Gillies Avenue, Epsom.
