Seeking your feedback
Dividing Line

Ports of Auckland recently published its port development proposals for public consideration.

Feedback received will be sent to Auckland Council and will be influential in their Unitary Planning process. Auckland's port is a national strategic asset, facilitating over $12.5 billion in trade and 187,000 jobs. With Auckland's predicted population growth, it's role will become even more important, given that it is on the doorstep of our country's largest market, so it is vitally important that its growth is properly planned for.

You can read the development proposal and other background material on our website here.

The proposal document contains a short survey at the end, which we would appreciate and encourage you to complete and forward to others in your organisation.
