Feedback wanted

More feedback is wanted on Auckland Council’s Long-term Plan 2015-25 as consultation continues

Over 5,000 Aucklanders have now provided feedback on Auckland Council’s 10-year budget with weeks left to go until consultation closes.

Initial feedback results show 55 per cent of respondents support fixing Auckland’s transport with an advanced network that would require additional funding, while 26 per cent support a basic transport network that costs less.

The preferred funding option to pay for the advanced Auckland Plan transport network is a motorway charge (34 per cent support), while funding with tax and rates increases has so far received 29 per cent support.

Mayor Len Brown is pleased with the numbers but would still like to see many more Aucklanders having their say.

"We are asking Aucklanders to tell us what they think about some of the biggest issues that will impact how our city grows and how we fix out transport problems," he says.

"Even though we are already at a record number of people to feedback on a council budget I want thousands more people to have their say."

Public consultation on council’s 10-year budget, known as the Long-term Plan 2015-25, runs until March 16, 2015.
