Another person has put their hand up to be Mayor of Auckland.

Stephen Berry, a food retail manager, also ran for the mayoralty in 2004.

He's running under the Affordable Auckland ticket, which advocates the council removing itself from the housing debate, while also calling for more land to be opened up for residential development.

Other contenders for the mayoralty include activist John Minto, restaurateur John Palino and Uesifili Unasa, who chairs the Auckland Council's Pacific People's Advisory Council.

Len Brown is also running for a second term.
