Public consultation on the draft Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) ran from Tuesday 1 May 2018 to Monday 14 May 2018.
The consultation process was aligned with the consultation on the proposed Regional Fuel Tax (RFT).
We received 18,091 submissions in total, including 17,930 from individuals and 161 from organisations or companies. Over 60 people attended public drop-in events held across the city. Four organisations also presented their views at the regional stakeholder event on Friday 11 May 2018.
Six iwi elected to present to a formal hui on Tuesday 15 May 2018, led by the Governing Body with members of the Regional Transport Committee (RTC) in attendance. The Auckland Council Mana Whenua Kaitiaki Forum (a leadership-governance forum) also provided a submission, though elected not to present. In total, 13 of the 19 members of the Kaitiaki Forum submitted, as well as the forum itself.
All 21 local boards adopted resolutions giving feedback on the draft RLTP, with most boards also including detailed feedback. Twenty local boards presented feedback on the draft RLTP in person to representatives of the RTC on Monday 7 May 2018.
For more information on the feedback received, see the RLTP final document.
The Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) will help fund transport investment in Auckland, and was consulted on in May, alongside the draft RLTP.
For more information on the RFT and the projects that it will help fund, see the Auckland Transport website.
