Auckland Council

North Shore 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.

Transport

Helping communities get from A to B is a key responsibility of local government, from making sure the buses run on time to providing car parking and walking and cycling paths. Whether public transport is the responsibility of the regional or local council depends on where you are in the country. Local councils also own 87% of New Zealand’s roads.

  • Develop a transport plan that responds to the needs of all Aucklanders not just those who can catch a bus or ride a bike.

    Advocate for public-private investment in ride-share e-shuttles to deliver school kids, collect groceries, deliver professionals etc.

    Give local boards shared decision making with Auckland Transport over local roads.

  • Work to get people back using public transport.

    Stop the building of cycle lanes whilst the council finances are in such a perilous state.

    Listen to the community when thinking about cycle lanes.

  • Progress the next harbour crossing with my flagship light rail; Wynyard – Takapūna – Smales Farm – Glenfield – North Harbour – Albany.

    Shake up Auckland Transport to make it a public-facing and accountable public service that listens and acts on customer needs.

    Develop a new Bayswater ferry terminal to accommodate electric ferries and progress the next stage of Downtown ferry terminal.

  • Increase utilization of the entire carriageway by removing unproductive bus lanes and cycleways temporarily to increase fuel tax income.

    Increase safe and secured bicycle storage facilities at all major centres and better road safety for cyclists.

    Increase carpark spaces in major centres to cater for the aging population, families with young children and people with disabilities.

  • Provide more transport choices. Good public transport and safe walking/cycling options is the only way to reduce emissions and congestion.

    Make our streets and neighbourhoods safer for everyone. Prioritise this work around schools and town centres. Continue footpath upgrades.

    Work with government to progress new harbour crossing prioritising rail to the shore. Work with Fulllers on staffing, to increase ferry frequency.

  • Support additional Harbour Crossing to include roading options, as well as rail, walking and cycling.

    Do not support unfunded $2 billon bike strategy, with unsafe separated cycleways, eg Upper Harbour.

    Improve public transport connections across the North Shore town centres. More off peak travel for employees in town centre to get home safely at night.
