Te Tahua ā-Tau 2023/2024

Annual Budget 2023/2024

The council's Governing Body adopted the Annual Budget 2023/2024 on 29 June 2023.

This budget details what the council plans to spend money on, the services we will provide and where we will make savings in the 2023/2024 financial year.

During the process of setting this budget, Auckland faced the impact of a rapid rise in both interest rates and inflation, and experienced devastating and tragic storm events.

These factors led to some tough budget measures in response to a $325 million gap between our revenue and operating expenses, along with a $40 million gap to fund storm-related costs in 2023/2024.

After considering your feedback, this budget sets a range of measures to close the gap including:

  • spending cuts
  • a total rates increase of 7.7 per cent per year for the average value residential property
  • an increase in debt
  • the sale of some assets to save on interest payments.
