If you want something – say so now !

Do you want skateboard facilities for our community ?   Maybe some space for a community garden / allotments?

Skate bowl PihaAll Local Boards are reviewing their 2016/17 budget.   If you want something, Piha, then now is the time to say it.




HaveYourSayWhat Waitakere Ranges Local Board are proposing:

  • continuing implementation of the Waitākere Ranges Strategic Weed Management Plan
  • following up on feedback and actions from Te Wao Nui a Tiriwa – the Standing up for the Waitākere Ranges Forum held in October 2015
  • developing and improving information for the community on living in the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area
  • carrying out a survey and character study of local heritage in Swanson
  • continuing to produce and extend Thrive, our newsletter showcasing sustainable business in the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area
  • further cycle and pedestrian improvements and connections between Oratia, Parrs Park and Sunnyvale
  • greater emphasis on the marine environment
  • more interpretation around parks, facilities, and public spaces
  • design guidelines for parks
  • waste minimization policy for parks and public places in the local board area.

They would like to know what we think:

I think you should be spending more on kiddies, teenagers, adults, elderly etc –  the people who pay rates and let AT and the Council do what they should be doing  !

  • Weeds – please don’t forget that AT is responsible for roadsides and Council for Regional land
  • More ‘guidelines’ on how to live in Waitakere – really ?  Don’t people know how to live ?
  • Marine environment  – what’s with that ?
  • ‘interpretation’  around parks, facilities and public spaces’  – probably more ‘do this and don’t do that’
  • Design guidelines for parks – Yawn !
  • Cycle / pedestrian improvements Oratia etc – good !
  • Survey heritage in Swanson – I thought Council Parks & Heritage looks after this ?
  • What about the people, the people, the people ?

    First priority is for some decent footpaths, to enable safety for pedestrians, particularly in Beach Rd.
