Lisa has a clear vision of community needs for families, including new migrants, and understands the challenges involved in providing adequate infrastructure alongside new development. As a parent, she recognises the value of our parks, sports facilities, libraries, clean beaches and safe streets.
Growth and expansion should not be at the expense of our environment or quality of life. As the city grows, Council must strive to operate in a transparent, inclusive and accountable manner.

Top 5 Issues
- Completion of the Long awaited Community pool at North Harbour Stadium
- Preservation of our local community identity within the regional governance structure
- Extension of the park n ride parking at the Albany bus station, and a willingness to advocate for improved feeder bus services around the area to facilitate the growth of the busway
- Advocate for Value for Money, Responsible Decision Making. Our property prices are among the highest in the region, meaning that we are contributing to the regional purse in a substantial way - strong voices will be needed to ensure the distribution is equitable.
- Development of community infrastructure in line with development

One of the biggest issues facing the Upper Harbour and East Coast Bays local Board area is ensuring the provision of adequate core and community infrastructure to keep pace with development of Albany as a sub-regional centre, and the creation of new sub-divisions and communities. This includes completion of the long awaited northern aquatic facility, the planned expansion of the park and ride facility at the Albany Bus station, the development of a youth facility in Greenhithe, the completion of the Western ring route, and the expansion of the East Coast Bays library.
Other challenges include maximising the use of public transport, local traffic and parking issues, and stormwater management.
Development around the Long Bay Regional Park presents the challenge of preserving a key asset for the people of the Auckland region and taking measures to protect a fragile marine ecosystem.
