About The Central City

Central Auckland has changed dramatically over several decades. There used to be only a couple of thousand people living the central city and now there are over 20,000 people living primarily in apartments. About half of the people living in the city are permanent residents and the others are visitors to our city. Central Auckland is also home to thousands of students, businesses and community organisations. Each day about 80,000 people will come to work in the city and over 60,000 students will study at the many tertiary institutions. Our central city is home to many places of national significance including Auckland’s waterfront.

Our waterfront could be the best in the world and I am proud to have helped deliver the Auckland Governance reform and the Council Controlled Organisation Waterfront Auckland. Waterfront Auckland has been working hard to unlock the potential of our waterfront so that more Aucklanders can have access to it.

The development of Wynyard Quarter and Jellicoe Street represent significant progress for our city. Unlike other parts of the electorate it is hard for me to personally knock on doors to meet residents. I have personally written to residents several times since I have been elected including a personal invitation to all residents, inviting them to meet me at public meetings held in the central city. Central Auckland is home to many superb areas with stunning restaurants and bars including the Viaduct Basin and Britomart. I am passionate about public transport and have been working to help to deliver the Central City Rail link and a tram loop linking central Auckland with the Western bays.
