Our Goals

As a team we will be focused on Rodney first.

Our goals for the next term of the Rodney Local Board are split into two parts; goals and projects that the Local Board can achieve and has decision making powers on, and goals around advocacy which means areas where we will work with the community, Councillors, the Mayor and agencies to achieve progress on.

We have developed a realistic and achievable set of policies - there is no point saying we will, for example, keep rates down or build a highway, when the Local Board does not have any statutory ability to do such things.

If our team is elected we anticipate being able to achieve most of our goals or be able to show progress on them.

From 2016 our focus will be on...

Better Roads & Public Transport

  • Lobby NZTA for improvements on SH1 in the East and SH16 in the West. 
  • Improved public transport including park’n’rides, bus and rail services throughout Rodney.
  • Provide safe pedestrian, cycle and equestrian links within and between residential areas.
  • Increase the rate of road sealing within Rodney.
