Un­der­stand uni­tary plan

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Mi­grants and refugee groups are tak­ing part in a com­mu­nity meet­ing aim­ing to de­mys­tify the uni­tary plan.

The Roskill Com­mu­nity Net­work is host­ing The Chang­ing Face of Mt Roskill, or­gan­ised by res­i­dents for res­i­dents.

‘‘Auck­land Coun­cil’s uni­tary plan is com­plex and dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand but it is go­ing to af­fect us all,’’ a net­work spokes­woman says.

‘‘We be­lieve that our com­mu­nity has a voice that needs to be heard about is­sues that af­fect them.’’

The lo­cal board has or­gan­ised sev­eral open days for peo­ple to give ideas that will be fed into Auck­land’s uni­tary plan draft.

But the net­work is hop­ing to ap­peal to peo­ple at a more grass­roots level.

The meet­ing will dis­cuss, in sim­ple lan­guage, changes that might hap­pen and give an op­por­tu­nity to ask ques­tions in an in­for­mal en­vi­ron­ment.

There will be re­sources about dif­fer­ent ser­vices in the area and mi­grant and refugee groups will be present.

The event is sup­ported by the Puke­ta­papa Lo­cal Board and the Auck­land Coun­cil.

The Chang­ing Face of Mt Roskill meet­ing is on May 14, 7pm till 8.30pm at the Mt Roskill War Me­mo­rial Hall, 13 May Rd, Mt Roskill.
