Hi Neighbours, Making a big difference to lives in the south was a top priority in Auckland's 2012 visionary plan. Despite hard work on the ground, is the promise fulfilled? Read the story below:
Waitangi Day is just around the corner. Please remember all council kerbside collections be collected one day later than normal.
Every season provides unique opportunities to treasure and restore Aucklands natural environment, and summer is no exception.

Northcote Point wharf will reopen to the public on Monday and the ferry will be running again for the first time in two years.
The wharf has been renamed to Te Onewa Northcote Point, making it the first dual-named wharf on Auckland's ferry network.
It was closed in 2018 due to structural deterioration- the wooden structure under the deck had to be either repaired or replaced.
The $2.6 million work to renew the 60-year-old pier started in July and finished at the end of the year under budget despite the disruption caused by Covid-19.
Auckland Transport also upgraded the shelter for ferry users, installed new seating, improved security and lighting at the quay.
