What is the issue?
Auckland's rapid growth is putting pressure on the environment, as is the spread of pests, weeds and diseases that are threatening many of our native species.
Approximately two-thirds of Auckland's local native species are under threat of extinction.
What we are proposing
Our proposal is to invest more in environmental initiatives and to fund this through a targeted rate of either $21 or $47 for the average residential ratepayer.
