on the economic potential of our local
town centres, and your board made
this point strongly when we submitted

The Orakei Local Board area has seven
town and local centres among the
greatest number of any local board area.
Our submission built on feedback
from the board-led Orakei Economic
Development Summit late last year.
Business representatives told us of fve
key themes they want included in the

Long Term Plan Update
The Board organised four workshops last
month to help our community understand
the draft Long-term Plan and the projects the
Board wants to action this year through our
Local Board Agreement.
Key issues discussed included the proposed
single rating system, the rise in dog registration
fees, and the need for the Mayor and councillors
to scale back some of their large region-wide
projects because of the huge cost to ratepayers.
With submissions now closed, the Board is looking
forward to hearing from those who asked to make
verbal submissions at the hearings.
Extending place shaping: local place
shaping and urban design
Boosting development: retail and
service sector development support
Enhancing events: the role

To demonstrate our commitment, the
board now provides a total fund of
$80,000 to our business associations
to help stimulate local economic
activity. Already this has supported
the Ellerslie Christmas Parade, the
Remuera Fashion Show and the
St Heliers Festival.
