John Gillon


As Chair of the Kaipātiki Local Board, I opened workshops to the public, axed ratepayer-funded meals, held AT to account, and challenged council's crazy proposals (freedom camping at flooded Little Shoal Bay, dog rule changes, etc).

With my Shore Action team members, we've delivered a huge investment in the environment, pest-free initiatives and bush track upgrades. We've modernised playgrounds, installed shadesails, secured Northcote Wharf upgrade, brought back Movies in Parks, saved Frank Larking's boat, obtained funding to replace Birkenhead Grandstand, stopped parkland sales, retained Highbury Norfolk Pine.

I support completing Beach Haven Coastal Connection, extending clearway times on Onewa Road, improving ferry and bus services, better playgrounds, vibrant town centres, keeping developers within zoning rules.

I am positive and passionate about our community. I'm a School Board Trustee and admin of three Facebook community groups, connecting 30,000+ members of the Kaipātiki community.

Please support the Shore Action team.
