User Group - Potential impacts of Auckland growth

6 Feb, 2014

To assist their submission on the Auckland City Plan, Waikato Regional Council staff were interested in the potential impacts of projected growth on the northern part of the Waikato Region

WISE was used to run several plausible scenarios using projected economic and population growth figures for Auckland. The scale and scope of cross boundary impacts were highly dependant on the assumptions made about growth nodes in south Auckland (in the absense of structure plans) and cross boundary population movements.

This highlighted the need for on going collaboration bewteen the two councils in future growth projection and plan activities that relate to cross-boundary flow of population, economic activitiy and resources.
