The challenges created by a growing city aren’t simple, but we can solve them together with focused leadership and an engaged community.
Taking Climate Action
We support Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030 and zero net emissions by 2050.
Reduction of greenhouse gases should be core to all Council activities and support a Climate Change Targeted rate.
Careful Financial Management
We will be responsible guardians of Auckland’s public accounts and assets.
We will require Council Controlled Organisations like WaterCare to make a commitment to accountability, transparency, and local democratic decision-making.
Honouring Te Tiriti
We respect the role of Māori as kaitiaki and will consider the impact on Māori in all Council and Local Board decision-making.
We will promote bilingual names, information and consultation and incorporate tikanga and kawa in our celebrations and events.
Safe Public Spaces
We will seek to develop connected, resilient, inclusive communities.
We know that well-maintained town centres, libraries, community centres, parks, sports grounds, and arts facilities promote stronger communities and we will support them.
Reliable, Frequent Public Transport
Our vision is for genuine, equitable transport choices for people and goods to move around our communities and the Auckland region.
We support major transport infrastructure projects like the City Rail Link and light rail and will prioritise public transport.
Auckland is not a monolith. Our city is made up of local communities, each with its own flavour, traditions, and aspirations.
These communities are the beating heart of Auckland and need to be heard. We will fight to give our communities a voice.
Have your say on how our community develops. We value any time you can give to support our team in the Local Government elections.
City Vision is a centre-left local body political group representing the local Labour and Green parties and progressive people active in their communities.
