The Thriving Communities Plan - Ngā Hapori Momoho was originally adopted in 2014 and is Auckland Council’s core strategy for community and social development. It provides a platform for Council to support thriving, inclusive and resilient communities.

Since the plan’s adoption Auckland has experienced rapid population growth, increasing diversity and growing socio-economic inequality. These changes present both challenges and opportunities for the way council supports communities to participate and feel included.

We are now in the process of refreshing Thriving Communities, building on what is already working well and updating it to better reflect Auckland’s diversity and changing population. We have engaged with over 400 diverse community groups and leaders to help up to develop a refreshed plan that is relevant and responsive to their needs now and for the next 10 years.

On this site, you can find links to all the critical information we are using to refresh the plan. One of the most significant inputs is the findings from our community engagement phase, which we shared with local boards in April 2021. You can find the findings report in the Documents section on this page.
