We support strong and diverse Auckland communities by providing a wide range of arts, sports, recreation, library, and community services.

  • Capital investment - 3 years: $946 million.
  • Operating expenditure - 2022-2023: $830 million.

Our plan

  • Renewing our assets – investing in our existing parks and community facilities to keep them fit for service.
  • Further investment in our ngahere – a key action in our climate change package is the planting of 200 hectares of native forest in our regional parks.
  • Looking at new ways to deliver community services – investigating new ways to meet the needs of our growing and more diverse population through greater use of partnerships, digital services and multi-use facilities.

What we will deliver

  • Asset renewals.
  • Land acquisition.
  • Library renewals.

Challenges

  • Bringing people back to our facilities after COVID-19 and exploring alternative methods of delivery, while ensuring the safety of the community.
  • Changing needs – Auckland’s communities are not only growing but those communities, and their needs, are becoming more diverse.
