Community priorities and key local initiatives are the focus of the 2023 Henderson-Massey Local Board Plan.

The board adopted its plan for the next three years at its October business meeting after considering feedback received during consultation in July and August.

Henderson-Massey Local Board chair Chris Carter thanked local people and groups for their input into the final plan.

“Knowing our community’s priorities is critical to us. Our local plan needs to reflect those priorities,” he says.

These include:

  • advocating for the development of an urban marae on Harbourview-Orangahina Park

  • working with Eke Panuku to deliver a civic heart for Henderson through the Unlock Henderson Programme

  • implementation of the Shoreline Adaptation Plan for the Waitematā Harbour West area once developed, and

  • regular mataawaka (kinship groups) with the west local boards to discuss community priorities.

“We will also use the plan as the basis to advocate for our area to the council’s Governing Body as it develops its new 10-year Budget next year,” says Carter.

A local board plan is a strategic document developed every three years. It sets a direction for local boards and reflects community priorities and preferences.

It provides a guide for local board activity, funding and investment decisions, as well as influences local board input into regional strategies and plans, including annual budgets.
