In the lead up to the 2020 election, Stuff is keeping voters up to date with what’s happening in their electorate, through Neighbourly. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates in the running to be Auckland Central's MP.

The person elected will be the voice for your region in Parliament. If you’re having trouble getting entitlements or dealing with Government departments, they can help. If your community needs funding for certain projects or activities, or there isn’t enough healthcare in the area, the elected MP can step in and help.

The electorate comprises the inner city communities of Herne Bay, Ponsonby, Freemans Bay and along the waterfront to Mechanics Bay in the east. The western boundary is largely defined by Richmond Rd, the eastern boundary includes Auckland Hospital and the Domain, and the southern boundary includes parts of Grafton and Newton.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

Home Reserve Playground on the corner of Home Street and King Street in Grey Lynn will be temporarily closed from 1st October 2020 to mid December 2020 while upgrade works are being undertaken.

Waitematā Local Board is proud to be delivering the Home Reserve Upgrade Project. During this time, we encourage you to visit nearby playgrounds, including: Grey Lynn Park, Nixon Park and Western Park.

From the week beginning 28th September 2020, there will be no access into the park from either Home Street or King Street entrances, whilst the works are underway.

The construction works are scheduled to commence Thursday 1st October 2020 and are expected to be complete by mid December 2020 or earlier if practical. The contractor engaged to undertake the works on behalf of Auckland Council is Ventia.

The works will include removal of the existing playground, earthworks, installation of furniture, playground edging and surface, pathway renewal and half court line marking. The existing overgrown vegetation will be replaced with a mix of low growing native species designed to attract birds and insects.

During the works, the contractors will be using digging equipment and transporting material into the Reserve from Home Street entrance. There may be some noise during working hours (7.30am – 5pm, Monday – Friday), but the contractors will aim to keep this to a minimum.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and will make all effort to minimise disruption.

If you have any questions about these planned works, please contact waitematalocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz
