Auckland sport sector Facility Priorities Plan

What the Auckland sport sector Facilities Priorities Plan is about

The Auckland Facility Priorities Plan is a sector-based approach to inform and shape sports code planning and future sport facilities investment.

It focuses on providing sports facilities to enable sport participation at the community level, including social and casual participation.

Integrated approach

In 2017, over a nine month period, Aktive worked with the sports sector to develop a coordinated and integrated approach for future sport facility provision in Auckland. We and Sport NZ supported this work.

The process involved over 80 organisations, primarily regional and national sports organisations.

Regional sports trusts, major facility providers, our local boards and Aktive's Māori Advisory Group also provided valuable input.

What the Auckland sport sector Facilities Priorities Plan does

The plan looks across different types of sport and the region as a whole and encourages a partnership approach.

The plan:

  • confirms sector-wide strategic principles and priorities for investment in sport facilities
  • provides a process to evaluate and prioritise significant (more than $500k) sport facility investment proposals
  • identifies options to make the best use of existing sport facilities
  • considers the challenges, current gaps in what is being provided and future demand for investment in sport facilities in Auckland.
