Māngere Bridge Residents & Ratepayers
December 6, 2022 Business in Māngere Bridge | COMMUNITY | Mangere Bridge Village | Newsletter Issue 5 Dec 2022 | Services

Our local residents and ratepayers association was established in the 1960s to fight the menace of midges and smells from the then-new Drainage Board ponds in the Manukau Harbour.

The Association’s present objectives are to maintain and safeguard the interests of the residents of Māngere Bridge and to support organisations which operate for the benefit of the community.

For all residents

Membership is open to all residents of Māngere Bridge, and costs $5 per family per year.
Meetings are held in the St James Church hall at 7:00pm on the second Wednesday of every month (except January). New members can join at the meeting.

Local issues; local voices

Last month, Dr Mike Wilcox, a retired forestry scientist who lives in Māngere Bridge, presented a talk on the significant trees in Māngere Bridge and Ambury Farm.
Earlier in the year, the five major mayoralty contenders were hosted to a question and answer session.
We have had representatives from the Ghella- Abergeldie joint venture who are constructing a 4.5m diameter tunnel for Watercare under the Manukau Harbour.
Town planners from Auckland Council have attended to explain why Māngere Bridge needs multi-level apartments without adequate vehicle access or off-street parking.
We have also kept pressure on Healthy Waters to prosecute Allnex Industries who released 5000 litres of a chemical into the Manukau Harbour.
