A discussion document for Auckland's major stakeholders. The economic and social challenges that growth brings to our city are complex and global in scope. Almost two-thirds of the world's population will reside in cities by 2030. Intensification is becoming increasingly acceptable as a driver for social and economic development, but it is also placing existing infrastructure and resources under strain. These pressures create challenges for present and future Auckland residents and for the city's governors whose aspiration for Auckland is to be the world's most liveable city. There needs to be a roadmap for managed growth to ensure that Auckland's success does not come at the expense of the people and businesses who have made it their home.
The Committee for Auckland commissioned this report from KPMG to better understand the drivers of our rapid development so that we can get ahead of the growth curve through good planning and investment.
