The St Heliers & Glendowie Residents Association Inc was formed over 25 years ago.
In 1989 the local Auckland Councils were amalgamated into Auckland City Council and at this time, Community Boards were created. From then, the Association has had a better link to the Council, giving the residents a greater role in decision making for our local area.
The Association is a voluntary organisation and relies on financial support from the Community to enable it to lodge submissions and follow up current affairs in our area.
With the creation of the Super City, the Local Boards cover a greater area and have a larger budget and more authority, than the previous Community Boards. Hence, it is more important than ever, that our Association has a role in representing the St Heliers and Glendowie residents and ensuring that our interests are represented, if we are going to maintain the special character of our beautiful area.
The Vision for St Heliers & Glendowie.
“That the identities of St Heliers as a Seaside Village Community and Glendowie as a leafy suburb continue to flourish as welcoming and vibrant communities”
How This Will be Achieved.
“By protecting and enhancing the amenities and features of the Community.
We will proactively identify and address the challenges and opportunities the Community faces in achieving its Vision“
What the Association will do.
“We will inform local residents, promote projects, gather feedback and insights, support the community with knowledge & expertise, and facilitate community-led projects“
