Have your say on budget priorities for the West

Have your say on budget priorities for the west

Auckland Council’s Annual Budget consultation is now open. In addition to region-wide consultation on items such as rates, targeted rates on accommodation providers and a living wage for council staff, local boards are consulting on local priorities.

Here is a sample of some of the local priorities for the west local boards:


  • constructing a combined library and community centre at Westgate
  • preparing an updated open space plan for Harbourview-Orangihina Park, building on work done in the past as well as bringing in fresh thinking
  • investing additional local board funding in parks, playgrounds, footpaths, and offroad shared walking and cycling paths
  • working with Panuku Development Auckland to progress residential development on the sites that council owns in Henderson

Waitākere Ranges

  • improving Glen Eden’s town centre
  • focusing on the health of the Waitākere Ranges
  • support our villages to be more sustainable and resilient
  • making sure that protecting our cultural and historic heritage is seen as a core value


  • continue developing a new facility in Avondale
  • build and plan for more park and facility improvements
  • supporting development of more local paths and connections
  • encouraging innovative business and better jobs

The chairs of the west local boards, Shane Henderson (Henderson-Massey), Greg Presland (Waitākere Ranges) and Tracy Mulholland (Whau), encourage you to have your say.

How to have your say

You can have your say at where you can find out more about what local boards are consulting on.

A bumper edition of the council’s OurAuckland magazine, containing information on the consultation and a feedback form, was delivered to letterboxes across the city this weekend.

In addition, Have Your Say events are taking place across the region providing an opportunity to provide feedback in person. You do not have to pre-register; just come and provide your feedback to the board.

  • Waitākere Ranges, Thursday 9 March, 4 - 6pm
    Waitākere Ranges Local Board Office, 36 Glenmall Place, Glen Eden
  • Henderson-Massey, Tuesday 21 March, 4 - 6pm

  • Whau, Wednesday 22 March, 4 - 6pm
