Orakei Local Board is concerned that the proposed 3 Waters Reform will hamper/delay the important water quality work for Hobson Bay.
Please get online and support the councils proposed changes to the bill ensuring more local governance BEFORE 19 December.

What the reform means for Auckland?
The relationship between Auckland Council and the new entity will be more distant than it currently is between council and Watercare.
Currently Watercare is accountable to Aucklanders, through the elected members on Auckland Council's Governing Body.
Auckland Council appoints Watercare’s board of directors, and the law requires Watercare to comply with Auckland Council’s long-term plans and strategic direction.
In addition, the councillors approve Watercare’s Statement of Intent. A Statement of Intent is an organisation’s work programme and priorities for the next three years.

Whilst we understand that the track has been a great respite for children and parents during lockdown, we cannot overlook the health & safety assessment, damage to the reserve or concerning levels of antisocial behaviour at the site. In the new year we will work with the community on how to increase/improve bike activity opportunities. We request that Madills Farm is now left to regrow and recover. Any materials at the track site which owners want to pick-up, should be removed before Monday 6 December.
