Auckland needs better transport and services
port. Despite their best attempts our councils are choked in red tape and regulations or don’t have the money to get the job done properly.
The Auckland Council mayor will lead elected councillors who, with local boards, will understand the needs of the communities they serve.
Aucklanders can finally get the resources for an integrated transport system and consistent service delivery, but not at the expense of the diverse communities that make up greater Auckland.
Their unique identities will be preserved, and that’s why we’re staging a series of meetings in the city, to get a sense of how residents want their neighbourhoods represented.
Through dialogue, we’ll work together to determine board powers and the services they’ll deliver.
A select committee for Auckland has been set up to hear suggestions and stimulate debate and we enter that process with an open mind.
We welcome many of the suggestions that communities are putting forward. Keep them coming. • Meetings are being held across the city.
