Flaxroots: Empowering via community-led planning forums in Auckland North

Flaxroots supports communities to be in the driving seat of planning and deciding how to improve their neighbourhoods. It is a community-led initiative that actively engages local people on issues affecting their areas.

Flaxroots harnesses the community’s interest in solving local problems, contributing fresh ideas and increasing voluntary effort to generate new solutions. Communities take charge of developing a vision for their neighbourhood, translating it into community action plans which summarise locally identified priorities, goals, and aspirations.

It is a network of communities sharing information and resources, issues and initiatives. It is designed as a common space and approach bringing local leaders together to inform each other and their respective communities, yet retain autonomy and diverse identities. Flaxroots is an association presenting a concerted, mandated voice to Council on matters affecting local communities.
