Representing Massey Residents and Ratepayers


Welcome to the Massey Birdwood Settlers Association Incorporated web site.

The Association was incorporated in 1925, one of the first resident and ratepayers associations in Auckland.

The objects of the Society include the general advancement and improvement of the districts of Massey and Birdwood in the provincial district of Auckland and of the environments thereof, commercially and as a place of residence and otherwise howsoever. To co operate with the statutory bodies in looking after the affairs of the districts of Massey and Birdwood and to ensure the maximum fair expenditure of the general rates levied by such bodies in the districts for the benefit of the ratepayers, residents and visitors.

Another of the objects the Association that included on its founding document names like Luckens and Spargo is to pursue and undertake any activity with the object of establishing, improving or preserving social cultural or sporting activities or amenities or the unique environment of the Districts.

In plain English therefore, the Association represents your views to the local Council and Government, ensuring adequate resources are spent in the community that will benefit the whole community.

This Association is your Association – a voice to represent the community in matters relating to the way the City relates to all of us. Over the years many executive members of the Association have held elected positions within the City Council and Local Boards.

We have always made submissions to the Council on proposed rate increases as part of its role in ensuring local ratepayers are heard and the Council are aware that rate increase has a direct impact on many residents and local businesses budgets.

If you’re a resident or ratepayer in our area (From Ranui to Westgate and all areas between) the Massey and Birdwood Settlers Association Incorporated is well worth joining for a membership of just $1 (one dollar).
