We help deliver a vibrant city centre and local town centres. We do this to support businesses and a thriving economy, strong and inclusive communities, and showcase the culture and identity of Auckland.

  • Capital investment - 3 years: $478 million.
  • Operating expenditure - 2022-2023: $123 million.

Our plan

  • Focus areas for growth – our investment will be prioritised in some keys areas in the north west (for growth around Red Hills, Whenuapai and Westgate), Drury and CRL stations (Mt Eden and Karangahape).
  • Compact city – the Development Strategy and Auckland Unitary Plan encourages a more compact city which in turn reduces the need to travel. We also ensure that provision for walking and cycling is incorporated in our planning.

What we will deliver

  • Transform and unlock programme.
  • Waterfront renewals.
  • Development of Te Ara Tukutuku.
  • Victoria Street Linear Park.

Challenges

  • Government policy/legislative changes – ability to manage and respond to proposed legislative changes.
  • Growth – Auckland’s population continues to grow rapidly. The demand for new infrastructure is rising while there is a growing need to look after our existing roads, water pipes, public transport, parks and community facilities.
