Panuku Development Auckland is a council-controlled organisation (CCO). We work closely with Auckland Council, other CCOs and local boards to contribute to the implementation of the Auckland Plan, the roadmap to deliver on Auckland’s vision to be the world’s most liveable city. This strongly aligns with our vision of ‘shaping spaces for Aucklanders to love’.
The key transformational shift in the Auckland Plan that Panuku will help deliver on is “to radically improve the quality of urban living”.
There are also a number of other plans, strategies and programmes across the council family such as local board plans, town centre plans and the economic development strategy which Panuku will contribute to and be guided by.
When delivering projects, we work in partnership with the Auckland Council family including the governing body, CCOs, local boards and the Independent Māori Statutory Board, by developing service level agreements, engagement plans and Māori responsiveness plans.
Additionally, through efficient management of around $1 billion of council property we provide an annual return of over $50 million back to Auckland Council.
Working with others
Based on the belief that effective collaboration will regularly out-perform individual or siloed approaches, Panuku is committed to engaging regularly with key stakeholders to ensure that urban regeneration in Auckland takes place in a cohesive way. This approach has proven to offer the best chance for resolving different and complex issues. Collaboration requires a close partnership between the public, private and community sectors across key platforms to achieve an integrated urban strategy. These partnerships must be invested in and put into practise at all levels of the organisation.
Panuku will build partnerships with the public, private and community sectors, and will incorporate best practice engagement processes into our daily work.
Panuku will build on our mana whenua relationships, and continue our monthly hui. Awareness raising of Te Ao Māori throughout Panuku is a key priority, ensuring recognition and celebration of Māori cultural values and heritage.
Statement of Intent
Each year Auckland Council CCOs must complete Statements of Intent as required under the Local Government Act 2002. Statements of Intent set out the objectives, nature and scope of activities undertaken, and performance targets for each CCO. This helps us achieve the objectives in our long-term plan and other strategic plans.
Below are the Annual Reports from the legacy organisations, Waterfront Auckland and Auckland Council Property Limited.
