Draft Annual Plan 2013/14 – Franklin Local Board

Draft was released and submissions open Thursday, 24 January and close Monday, 25 February 2013.

This plan is the immediate budgetary and priority plan for our Franklin Local Board for the next two years.

Local Board chairman, Andy Baker introduces the Franklin Board content – “MESSAGE FROM YOUR
LOCAL BOARD CHAIRPERSON The Franklin Local Board has focussed intently on ensuring our communities’ needs have been recognised. We believe rates increases if needed must be kept to an absolute minimum, whilst retaining levels of service and funding to support and create local initiatives so community expectations can still be met where possible. Our priorities of better public transport, safer rural
roads and enhanced local economic development remain unchanged. Our burgeoning tourism industry around our east and west coasts, alongside our position as a vital food producer, the continued growth and popularity
of Pukekohe as a town centre and those things which makes Franklin such an important part of Auckland
now and in the future are foremost in our thinking. Our aspiration cannot become reality without effective communication and strong relationships with our community, so I again urge people to look carefully at this year’s annual plan, ask questions and make submissions.
Andrew Baker
