Are you less than 25? Are you passionate about Auckland? If you answered yes to those two questions, or know someone who is then read on.
In a few weeks we should get our first look at the unitary plan which is document that will detail how and where Auckland will grow. In effect it will be the rule book that governs how the city develops and will replace the district plans of councils that existed prior to the amalgamation of 2010. The unitary plan follows on from the Auckland Plan that was signed off last year and which provides the high level vision. As part of the consultation process, the council is launching a competition for those under 25 to come up with a video that answers one of the following questions:
Auckland is set to grow from 1.5m to 2.5m people in 30 years…
What do you want Auckland to be like in 30 years?
What makes Auckland special and how do we protect it as it grows?
How can we make sure more people make this a more exciting place to live?
Submissions will be judged by a youth panel and the top three will be put onto the councils YouTube channel. The winner will get a $3000 Prezzy Card, second place will receive a $2000 Prezzy Card and third place a $1000 Prezzy Card.
