Engagement closed on Tuesday 26 April 2022
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on our plans to transform our city centre and other proposed changes to our 2021-31 Long-term Plan and draft 2022/23 Annual Plan. Your feedback has helped the Commission make some of the most exciting and significant decisions our city has seen including:
- Bringing to life the full vision for the civic precinct – Te Manawataki O Te Papa – Overall, we heard you agree it’s time to get the heart of our city pumping
- Pursuing an innovative funding approach to pay for infrastructure to support our growth – We heard you think we should consider becoming one of the first NZ councils to utilise the Government’s Infrastructure Funding and Financing Act (IFF) to address inadequate housing supply and traffic congestion
- Making rates fairer for everyone – we heard you agree it’s time to even out the playing field for our commercial and residential ratepayers
- Investment in a range of community facilities and initiatives across the city – we listened to your ideas and we’re going to make them happen
All decisions made this week will be formally adopted by the Commission next month.

We want to know what you think about our plans to transform our city centre and look at new ways of funding infrastructure.
When we adopted the 2021-2031 Long-term Plan last year there was an expectation that some things in the plan would change before the next three-yearly review, and that we would be asking you for further feedback. That time has come.
