Auckland Branch

Welcome to the Auckland Branch

Property is NZ's biggest industry contributing $29.8b to the economy in the 2015-16 financial year. That's 13 percent of New Zealand's gross domestic product (GDP). Auckland is 35 per cent of these amounts. Over the last few years the Auckland Branch has focussed on ensuring the Auckland Unitary Plan reflects the Auckland Plan aspiration of a quality, liveable, compact city. The success of the Auckland Unitary Plan needs to be judged by the quality of its implementation.

There are many facets to ensuring that Auckland remains a liveable city and to ensure this we need consenting to be streamlined, developments that are both feasible and lead to positive urban design outcomes, and infrastructure that is funded appropriately. Adequately funded and improved infrastructure is the core that ensures the population can live and move about the city efficiently to enjoying living, working and playing in the urban environment. The Auckland Branch intends to work closely with central and local government to ensure that Auckland keeps moving and growing.

If you want to be a part of what we are doing, please get in touch. Strength in numbers creates positive change and ensures we continue to move forward.
