Auckland Council The Auckland Plan

Measuring progress

Effective monitoring and clear evaluation processes are fundamental to the successful implementation of the Auckland Plan 2050.

A robust monitoring and evaluation framework provides:

  • a process for tracking progress
  • an ongoing evidence base for aligning the implementation and regulatory plans and funding programmes of Auckland Council and other stakeholders.

Monitoring framework

The monitoring framework measures progress towards the strategic direction set out in the Auckland Plan 2050.

The outcomes are broad in nature and inter-dependent. Some measures inform progress across more than one outcome, reflecting the integrated nature of the plan.

Auckland Plan 2050: Monitoring framework

Annual scorecard

The annual scorecard includes 33 measures that are aligned to the six Auckland Plan 2050 outcomes and the feasible development capacity target for housing as required by the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity (NPSUDC).

The outcomes are broad in nature and are to a large extent inter-dependent.

Some measures inform progress across more than one outcome, reflecting the integrated nature of the plan.

​Development Strategy Monitoring

The Development Strategy shows how Auckland will grow and change over the next 30 years. It takes account of the Auckland Plan outcomes, as well as anticipated growth and opportunities provided in the Auckland Unitary Plan. Monitoring of the Development Strategy is undertaken on an annual basis to measure and report on progress toward achieving the implementation of the strategy.

The first monitoring report was delivered in October 2019.

Three yearly progress report

A progress report against the six outcomes will be prepared every three years to support evidence-based decision making required to implement the Auckland Plan’s strategic direction. This report supplements the annual scorecards and provides a more detailed analysis of trends for each outcome detailed in the Plan, drawing on a range of other reports and data sets.

The first report was completed in February 2020.
