About the Draft Sports Investment Plan

This consultation closed on 8 April 2019. Thank you for having your say.

We received more than 1200 submissions from the online form, email, and through sessions with public groups, stakeholders and local boards.

On 10 July 2019, the Environment and Community Committee agreed to adopt the final plan.

See Increasing Aucklanders’ Participation in Sport: Investment Plan 2019- 2039 to view the adopted plan in full.

Key themes

Consultation feedback was highly supportive of the draft plan overall.

In particular, people were supportive of the plan's focus on meeting community needs and equity.

There were some concerns about how the plan will be applied in practice, and many respondents also wanted clarification on the definitions in the plan, such as the scope of sport.

Changes made as a result of feedback

The final plan has incorporated the following small changes:

  • further clarification of key definitions
  • removal of explanatory notes and fictional scenarios that were added in the draft plan to assist public consultation – the final plan will focus solely on setting the broad direction and the framework for our future sport investment
  • minor editing and design changes to ensure clarity and logical flow of the document.

View a summary of the feedback

 The Draft Sports Investment Plan - Increasing Aucklanders' Participation in Sport: Investment Plan 2019-2039 outlines our new approach to sport investment over the next 20 years.

The plan was approved by the Environment and Community Committee in December 2018 and is open for feedback from 18 March 2019.

We want to hear what you think of the draft plan before it is adopted in mid 2019.

What the draft plan hopes to achieve

This plan is our response to the changing sport preferences of the increasingly diverse and growing population of Auckland.

Our aim is to make Aucklanders 'more active, more often.'

We have previously consulted with the public on what type of investment the council should make in sport and incorporated this feedback into our draft plan. 

What we want your feedback on

  • the plan's objectives
  • the key shifts in future sport investment
  • the focus on equity by targeting communities of greatest needs •
  • the investment principles
