Auckland Council

Albany Ward
The Auckland Council makes strategic decisions for Auckland on public transport, urban planning, environmental protection and other big issues. The council provides funding to local boards to provide public services in their areas, and manages council-controlled organisations which provide infrastructure, such as public transport, water and sewerage. The councillors and mayor make up the governing body, which shares governance of Auckland Council with the 21 local boards. The governing body is made up of 20 councillors plus the mayor. Councillors are elected to represent wards (areas in Auckland). Two councillors will be elected from your ward. This is a first past the post (FPP) election, so you vote by ticking the name of your preferred candidate on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the Auckland Council election.

Freshwater

The worsening state of New Zealand’s lakes and rivers is a major challenge for regional councils, which play a leading role in managing freshwater in their areas. To this end, regional councils create plans to protect water resources from contaminants and overuse.

  • Ensure council encourages diversified water collection by residents to support the water infrastructure in times of depleted water sources.

    Focus on having a clear and shared vision for how Auckland Council develops freshwater policy and makes future decisions.

    Understand rural Auckland will have different needs to suburban Auckland and develop freshwater policy with sensitivity for those needs.

  • Improve freshwater quality greatly with scheduled, supportive and professional assistance on daily basis in the Albany ward with locals.

    Innovate irrigation and its supportive necessary services and requirements with expedient, timely and effective consistency. Ensure Penlink.

    Fix land use affecting water resources in expedient, prudent and conservative ways, without limiting the current users.

  • Strict enforcement on dumping and pollutant discharge into the stormwater network.

    Restore our existing freshwater streams many of which are choked with rubbish, building debris and uncontrolled invasive weeds.

    Improve compliance management of developers working near fresh waterways.

  • Oppose any illegal, central government asset grab of Auckland's drinking water, stormwater and wastewater infrastructure, under Three Waters.

    Oppose any undemocratic moves to install unelected co-governance seats at council, seeking to steal water assets, under 'Three Waters' pretence.

    Complete the central interceptor project as quickly as possible, in order to stop sewerage from entering into Auckland's waterways.

  • Implement the recently developed water strategy across the region.

    Apply a catchment-based and integrated approach including education, monitoring, measurement, management and accountability.

  • Protect the water of our beaches and bays by improving water infrastructure so that they remain safe for swimming and recreation.

    Establish a water quality workforce to monitor levels of siltation in fresh water streams and rivers.

    Protect natural aquifers from being sold or used for commerce, maintaining the natural flow of waterways.

  • Implement, fund and incentivise recently developed 'Water Strategy' across the region.

    Apply a catchment-based and integrated approach including education, monitoring, measurement, management and accountability.

    Apply conservation initiatives for water including a requirement for cleaner production and contractual obligations to avoid water wastage.
