Our area is in danger of missing out on funding unless more people make submissions on the Orākei Local Board (OLB) draft plan. Numbers in favour of projects are just as important as numbers objecting. If the proposed projects don’t get enough support, funding will be allocated to other areas of Auckland.
OLB has made it extremely simple to have your say with a brochure outlining key points of the plan. Simply fill in the page at the back, tear it off and post it back for free. These brochures were delivered to mailboxes in July. If you missed out, visit the Orākei Local Board office in Meadowbank Mall to pick up a copy.
Otherwise, see the Auckland Council’s ‘Shape Auckland’ website to see the full draft plan and make an online submission.
The deadline is August 6, so move quickly!
