Auck­lan­ders are in­vited to have their say on how the re­gion in­vests in play over the next 20 years to en­sure ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties meet the needs of a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion. Auck­land Coun­cil will re­view sub­mis­sions be­fore de­vel­op­ing the an ‘‘in­vest­ing in play plan’’, which will set out Auck­land’s in­vest­ment frame­work and pri­or­i­ties for play now and in the fu­ture. Coun­cil­lor Penny Hulse said play was an im­por­tant fo­cus for coun­cil. Cur­rently, coun­cil pre­dom­i­nantly in­vests in play­grounds but this is set to change. The long-termplan 2015-2025 had $33 mil­lion al­lo­cated for re­new­ing as­sets and a fur­ther $25 mil­lion to pro­vide new play op­por­tu­ni­ties. Visit sha­peauck­land.co.nz to have you say be­fore July 10.
