Recent growth patterns
Auckland's population has grown by 180,700 since the first Auckland Plan was adopted in 2012.
The rate of growth has remained high in recent years, and increased by 43,000 in 2016/2017.
In the past five years consents for new dwellings have increased from 5500 (2012/2013) to over 10,000 (2016/2017) per annum. If consents continue at this level, Auckland will be on track to consent around 100,000 new homes between 2012 and 2022.
Auckland is also delivering more attached housing than in previous years. This offers people greater housing choice. The proportion of attached dwellings has increased from 16 per cent of all dwellings consented in 2012/2013 to 43 per cent in 2016/2017.
