• Ecological Prioritisation for Waitemata Local Board
• Draft Auckland Council Parks and Open Spaces Strategy
Had a quick look and while good stuff and great words, very general and the reality of getting it done is not fully considered. In other words, very top-end planning – and maybe too “planese” – remote from public engagement. Does not deal well with conservation versus recreation conflicts on limited parks resource.
PLEASE WRITE TO COUNCIL: That key community groups such as the Friends of Regional Parks (FOR Parks) and F&B and FoM etc be consulted as part of the next consultation process. There may be an over-emphasis with the CCOs having too great an input into the process, without it balanced with community groups having an input.
