Join Auckland Conversations for two events on 28 February and 22 March when Auckland Council consults on the future of the city in its 10-year Budget and the 30-year Auckland Plan. We need to consider the long term challenges facing Auckland and the outcomes that we want to achieve.
The council is proposing a regional fuel tax to fund investment in Auckland’s transport network and decongest our city, while also considering small targeted rates to protect our environment, improving water quality in our streams, rivers and harbours, and protecting our native trees, birds and animals from disease and pests.
Are these the right priorities? Will they create a world class city?
The first of these events will focus on Transport - is a fuel tax the answer to Auckland’s transport challenge? Or is there another way? And does Auckland have its long-term transport plans right?
Bernard Hickey, Managing Editor of Newsroom Pro and a Director of Newsroom NZ Ltd, will facilitate this event and will be joined by Auckland Mayor Phil Goff and a panel of industry experts to discuss and debate Auckland’s transport challenges and the potential solutions available.
