This is the last week for the feedback stage of the Auckland Council’s 10-year budget, also known as the long-term plan (LTP) 2015-25.
All businesses are encouraged to have their say. Deadline for submissions is 4pm, 16 March 2015.
There are four big issues on which they are seeking feedback.
1. Investing in Auckland – How much should be invested in Auckland over the next 10 years?
2. Fixing Transport – Transport is the single biggest issue for Auckland. Major investment will be needed in the next decade to avoid worsening congestion. The feedback probes your response to additional charges such as a motorway charge, or an increase in fuel taxes and rates.
3. Your Rates – Plans around the reduction of the business differential is open for comment.
4. Council’s role in housing and development.
