Community projects and programmes are the big winners in the Henderson-Massey Local Board work programme for the financial year 2022-23, with significant funding for projects that benefit the community.
Developed over a period of months, the programme allocates funding across a range of areas, including environmental projects and services, with organisations such as Ecomatters Environment Trust to provide various programmes, as well as for the first time, community group Te wai O Pareira who will receive $20,000 to support efforts to improve the Awa.
Community organisations Ranui Action Project, MPHS, Ranui 135, Massey Matters, Zeal and West Auckland Boxing Academy all will receive funding to continue work with young people and community groups in the area.
Elsewhere, sports enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that $814,000 has been allocated to upgrade Fred Taylor Park sports field and lighting to FIFA standards, while the ongoing programme of works at West Wave has $10 million allocated for the next three years.
Henderson-Massey Local Board Chair, Vanessa Neeson says that the work programme is all about helping the local community.
“From environment projects through to capital works, our work programme is wide reaching and is grounded in work that will benefit our community.
“We are so pleased to be able to formally fund the community group Te wai O Pareira, who have been doing some incredible work around Henderson Creek.
“While we continue to fund other well-established community groups to keep on delivering with their communities.
“The work programme demonstrates that we know and trust our community partners to keep on delivering great work and outcomes for the area, and we are only too happy to help make that happen.”
