What will Auckland look like by 2036?

What will Auckland look like by 2036?

Auckland has been decried this week as “sucking the life out of New Zealand” – but what are the long-term implications for this multi-diverse city?

What will Auckland – and Aucklanders – look like by 2036?

The future of the Auckland region and how locals feel about these changes will be explored in a new study by Massey University and University of Waikato researchers.

The Nga Tangata Oho Mairangi study is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and led by teams from the two universities.

Researchers will investigate the impact of demographic and economic changes in the Auckland region, provide a detailed model of the nature of these changes, and also make projections about future changes out to 2036.

The teams will also speak with Aucklanders about what is happening in their region, and what they think about the changes, including the challenges and opportunities they present. The Auckland research will be done by Dr Patricia Ubeda, and she is looking for 30 households of two or more people to interview.

Research manager Dr Trudie Cain has already visited the West Coast and Southland regions for the study, and says they are looking forward to hearing what Aucklanders have to say so they can compare residents’ perspectives.

“We are looking for a broad range of people and households – working age or retired, longstanding Auckland families or new migrants, tertiary students or unemployed, for example. We want to find out what their perceptions are about life in Auckland, what opportunities they see, why people move to the area – why they move away – and what would make young people stay.”

Dr Cain says Auckland is a region of economic and historical significance, and the information gathered from these interviews will help future planning for the Auckland region.

Auckland is one of five regions examined in the study. The other regions are Wellington, Christchurch, the West Coast and Southland.
