A Summary on the Local Board Plans from the Shape Auckland website:
About local board plans
Local board plans are guiding documents for local boards.
The plans are strategic three-year documents for each local board which reflect the priorities and preferences of the community, and will guide:
- our decisions on local activities, projects and facilities
- our input into the regional strategies and plans of Auckland Council how we work with other agencies that play a key role in our area, including community groups, central government agencies and council-controlled organisations
Boards are required to develop a local board plan every three years. The plans form the basis for development of the annual local board agreements for each financial year. They also inform the development of Auckland Council’s Long-term Plan, the council’s 10-year budget.
Two examples of what a Local Board Plan can be seen below. I have used the both the Papakura, and the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board Plans as the examples as I will be submitting on the, Papakura because it is my Local Board area I live in while Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board has Manukau City Centre in its area. Those following the blog know Manukau is a long-standing project of mine as I push for it to become a Super Metropolitan Centre as well as large-scale development over the next 30-years.
