Auckland Council is planning for a future in which it will have to cater for around two million people.

Figures from Statistics New Zealand suggest that by 2031, 38 percent of the country's population will live in Auckland.

Deputy Mayor Penny Hulse says the council has passed the Auckland Plan, which takes a 30-year vision of how the region should develop.

She says to cater for the population increase, it's the largest ever investment in Auckland's communities .

Penny Hulse says the plan, worth $3.2 billion on an annual basis, will ensure a sufficient public transport system, community services, infrastructure and enough land for housing.
