Setting the context

Towards 2060 sought to take the development of community outcomes to the “next level” in three ways:

  • It explicitly addressed a longer-term forward timeframe, 50 years.
  • It built on the Auckland Sustainability Framework’s 100-year timeframe for future thinking, taking into account the “forces for change” that have been identified as strategic drivers of change in the 21st century.
  • It also brought spatial design into the conversation.

 

Notes


 
1.Towards 2060 explicitly addresses a longer-term forward timeframe 50 years, whereas the community outcomes process is required to be undertaken not less than every six years, it is otherwise atemporal.
2.It builds on the Auckland Sustainability Framework’s100-year framework for future thinking, taking into account the “forces for change” that have been identified as strategic drivers of change in the 21st century.
3.It introduces spatial design into the conversation, whereas the community outcomes process was non-spatial - driven by the Local Government Act without necessarily including the planning framework of the Resource Management Act.
