Our funding approach

Auckland Council's financial strength and stability is supported by a strong institutional framework for local and regional governments.

Every year, we must ensure our operating revenue is greater than our operating expenses.

Our 10-year budget 2021-2031 (Our Recovery Budget) will deliver $31.8 billion of investment into the city's infrastructure.

This funding will tackle the critical issues of:

  • transport congestion
  • housing affordability
  • protecting our environment.

Some of this infrastructure will be funded through debt.

We offer borrowing opportunities through wholesale and retail bond issuance, in domestic and offshore currency.
