Dividing Line

Consultation on Ports of Auckland's recently published port development proposals end on Sunday 9 June, so if you haven't had your say yet, you can do so here.

Feedback received will influence Auckland Council 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.
