Council receives overwhelming support for Te Whau Pathway  

Over 350 submissions received, with 310 in support.

That’s the level of response Auckland Council received during the submissions process for the Te Whau Pathway, a project linking the Manukau and Waitematā Harbour with a shared walk and cycleway along the coastline.

In partnership with Auckland Council, Healthy Families Waitākere facilitated a community workshop series to mobilise community voice during the submissions process.  Both organisations were thrilled to learn the number of submissions received, particularly the level in support. Healthy Families Waitākere Lead Systems Innovator, Catherine Powell, explains.

“During the submissions process for the Te Whau Pathway, we worked to mobilise and uplift community voice to ensure the pathway reflected their unique needs and wants. To achieve such a high level of submissions is encouraging and we look forward to being a part of this project as it progresses.”

The next phase of the project will see plans reviewed through a public hearing process, dates and times to be advised. For more information on Te Whau Pathway please contact Gill,
