About the Pre-election Report 2022

We have published our 2022 Pre-election Report, ahead of the 2022 local elections.

This report is a legislative requirement of the Local Government Act 2002, which the chief executive of each council must prepare independently of their mayor and councillors.

The report focuses on issues that will need to be considered in the next council term and provides information on what major projects the council expects to fund over the next three years.

What the pre-election report covers

The 2022 Auckland Council Pre-election Report notes three key challenges over the next council term:

Climate change action

Responding to a changing climate is likely to require substantially increased funding, fundamental reprioritisation of existing spending and policy changes.

Addressing inequity across Tāmaki Makaurau

Our Economic Development Action Plan (PDF 3.9MB) identifies tangible actions for mitigating and reversing inequality, particularly in the wake of COVID-19.

Funding and financing Aucklanders’ needs

Current revenue is not adequate to deal with the financial pressures we are facing – our costs are increasing at a faster rate than the money coming in.

As the pressure on costs increases, it must be carefully balanced against the need to keep charges for residents and businesses affordable, both now and into the future.

The pre-election report details these challenges and poses some questions about what more could be done to respond to them.

It should be read in conjunction with other Auckland Council documents such as the long-term plan, annual report and quarterly reports.
