What will Auckland’s city centre look like in 20 years? The City Centre Masterplan (CCMP) which maps out exactly that, has been refreshed - and will be consulted on in August. 

The updated plan includes new concepts that shape the city centre vision. One of the new concepts introduced is Access for Everyone - an initiative we are working on with Council to ensure business needs are met, such as servicing and loading.

Other additions include the eastern transformation of Grafton Gully and Māori Outcomes - that collectively will unlock the liveability, the accessibility and the indigenous Maori creativity of Auckland today and into the next 20 years.

Consultation on the new City Centre Masterplan designs begins mid-August and will remain open until late September 2019. This is a good opportunity for all Aucklanders, including the city centre business community, to have a meaningful say on how you want the city centre to look and perform. 

Through our role in the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board we have been advocating for the CCMP to be fully integrated with the plans for the Waterfront, including the land occupied by the port.  This will ensure we have an aspirational vision for the city centre that connects closely with the waterfront, and a holistic masterplan that can guide investment and progress towards achieving the vision.  We will be providing feedback through the formal consultation process on this point. 

We will keep you informed of next steps, including how to have your say when public consultation opens.
