Grey Lynn libraryAs part of the Auckland Council Annual Plan 2013/14 each Local Board adopts a Local Board Agreement which outlines agreed service levels, capital projects and prioritised advocacy initiatives.

The City Vision-led Waitemata Local Board has been able to secure the following for 13/14:

  • a significant redevelopment of Pioneer Women’s Hall, to coincide with the Freyberg Place upgrade to provide a vibrant community hub
  • the redevelopment of Myers Park starting with a major upgrade to the play ground
  • increasing the evening opening hours at Leys Institute, Grey Lynn and Parnell libraries
  • development of a community-led resource recovery centre
  • creation of a budget to upgrade facilities when undertaking routine renewals

The agreement also focuses on connecting parks and opening up the coastline, making the Waitemata area a child and family-friendly place to live and visit; identifying and protecting local heritage as well as protecting and enhancing natural environments with a focus on innovative approaches and community involvement.
