Understand unitary plan
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.
