It’s all in the numbers
“By understanding how the population growth islikely to increase, we have an opportunity to betterplan and budget for the future.” Andrew Bayly
Hunua is likely to grow by around 30,000 people over the next six years with Beachlands set to double in size, says Andrew Bayly.
Local Hunua MP A n d re w Ba y l y i s convinced that based on the numbers and his research, there is a strong likelihood that the projected population g row t h a l l a c r o s s Hunua will far exceed expectations and will dramatically increase in size.
Over the next six years alone, he says Beachlands will double in size whereas Waiuku on the other should not have any significant growth beyond what is expected.
The focus of the growth projections is extremely important according to Andrew as it will help with planning and budgeting and ensure that both on a local board and council level that these additional growth projections are taken into account.
Andrew has met with Auckland Transport, Auckland Councillor Bill Cashmore, head of the local board Andy Baker and a number of town planners to ensure that his concerns and projections are taken seriously.
Andrew is convinced that the numbers show that we need to be focusing our attention on infrastructure, transport and education.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
