As kaitiaki (guardian) of Auckland Council facilities and parks, we play a vital role in promoting the wellbeing of our communities and environment while also delivering strategically significant programmes.

Our asset portfolio is big and complex, spanning both built and open space assets.  We have a lot of competing demands for how we could be investing to get the best from our existing portfolio, while at the same time needing to guide future change in our portfolio as we respond to rapid population growth, changing community demands, our obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and the impacts of climate change.
