There’s still time to tell the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board what you think about their Draft local Board plan before consultation closes 14 August.

Consultation on the plan opened in July and Local Board Chair Toni van Tonder says the feedback so far has been amazing to see and encourages everyone on the shore to make sure their voices are heard.

“Thank to everyone who has taken the time to let us know what they think about our plan. It’s so useful to get this feedback from our community and we want to keep the ball rolling to make sure we are hearing from as many different people as we can so we can make the right decisions over the next three years. So please give us a few minutes of your time and have your say today.”

In their draft plan the board has developed five priorities to help guide the decisions they make over the next three years: Our people, Our environment, Our Community, Our Places and Our economy.

Read about the board’s first three priorities here and take a look at what the rest of the priorities mean for the shore.  

Priority 4: Our Places

The board wants our transport network to be connected, safe and efficient. They will continue to work alongside the Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi to progress the Lake Road project and encourage initiatives that connect our area with the wider North-South and East-West corridors and the proposed Northern Pathway.

The board will investigate priority routes that are well-lit and safe to encourage uptake of active transport options and explore opportunities to develop a walking and cycling link along the Wairau estuary. 

Priority 5: Our Economy  

The board envisions a north shore with vibrant, safe and attractive town centres and villages that cater to the needs of our residents, businesses, and visitors.

Key initiatives to make this happen include the completion of urban regeneration projects such as Unlock Takapuna including a revamped Waiwharariki Anzac Town Square.

To encourage future business leadership the board will continue its work with the Shore Junction Innovation Centre to provide training, access to business mentoring and work experience opportunities for youth and rangatahi Māori.
