Information for voters and potential candidates
Message from the Chief Executive
Auckland is home to around 1.7 million people and our numbers are growing at a significant rate.
By 2028, it is expected around two million people will call Auckland home.
While the increase in size and density will have some positive economic effects, stimulate innovation and boost our diversity, the unprecedented pace of our region’s population growth also presents us with a number of challenges. This means, following the October local elections, our newly elected mayor, councillors and local board members will have to make some tough decisions about the prioritisation of our funding and resources.
