Pacific advisory panel meets

Auckland Council’s Pacific People’s Advisory Panel will meet publicly for the first time next week (July 19)

The meeting will be held from 5.30-8.30pm in the level two reception lounge at Auckland town hall.

The panel was set up to offer advice to the council on regional policies, plans and strategies and matters of interest to the various members and aspects of the Pacific community.

The meeting will discuss the Auckland Refresh Plan, an initiative to re-think the Auckland development plan put forward by the previous council.

This was intended to coordinate and align land use and infrastructure planning and provision to cope with the rapid growth in Auckland.

Auckland Council lists the following  people as members of the Pacific Advisory Panel: Afa’ese Kitiona Manoa, Caroline Ligi Harris, Cedric Eddie Tuiavii, Helen Tau’au-Filisi, Jordan Knightley, Pat Masina, Leaupepe Taala Ralph Elika, Sefita Alofi Hao’uli, Tammy Kingi,  Cr Alf Filipaina and Cr Cathy Casey.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
