Your voice for Hibiscus & Bays
Speaking up for
Your Hibiscus and Bays Local Board has a
detailed plan to advance our communities'
priorities and we're working alongside
Auckland Council to help deliver the
programmes, services and infrastructure
needed to sustain our quality of life.
We are now in the budgeting phase of the
Auckland Council planning cycle. You and your
local board have important roles to ensure the
mayor and councillors (the governing body)
hear what is important to our communities.
Recently you would have received in your
letterbox a newsletter summarising Auckland
Council's draft Long-term Plan 2012-22 and
an invitation to have your say.
The governing body has produced the budget
and proposed individual funding agreements
with each local board. The final Hibiscus and
Bays Local Board budget will be negotiated
with the governing body after submissions
have been received and heard.
The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board will
continue to advocate for our communities'
priorities but it is essential you make
submission so your issues and ideas are heard.
You have until Friday, 23 March to make
a submission. It is an easy process clearly
explained in the summary document and
Stillwater Mobile Library
Service has started.
Opportunity to have your
say on the Hibiscus and
Bays Area Plan
The development of the Hibiscus and Bays
Area Plan is underway and your views will
be a vital input.
The Hibiscus and Bays and Mangere-Otahuhu
Local Board areas are the first two area plans
to be developed. The purpose of an area plan
is to implement the Auckland Plan at a local
level. The Auckland Plan is the strategy to
make Auckland the world's most liveable city.
The Hibiscus and Bays Area Plan will set the
direction for our area, with an emphasis on
land use and infrastructure.
The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board will host
events about the area plan. Please register
your interest by emailing your details to:

The new rules
Top of the 'T' goes before me
Learn the new rules at
Same signs or signals
No signs or signals
(In all these images the red car gives way.)
If you're turning right,
This rule will apply at intersections where two
vehicles are facing no signs or signals, or the
same signs or signals. You will need to give
way to left turning vehicles coming from the
opposite direction if you are turning right.
To make our roads safer, two of the give way rules
are changing. These changes will affect all drivers,
riders, pedestrians and cyclists. Remember to
share the road, obey all road signs and signals, and
make sure you know the new rules.
When you're turning right from the bottom of a
T-intersection with no signs or signals, you will
need to give way to all vehicles at the top of the T.
So at all T-intersections and driveways, including
public driveways such as at a supermarket or
hospital, think 'Top of the T goes before me'.
