Latest news – 12 June 2020 

There's now more time to have your say on southern Auckland projects in the Drury-Opāheke, Pukehohe-Paerata and Takaanini areas. Due to an overwhelming response we've extended public engagement until Friday 19 June.

Some projects are now funded through the NZ Upgrade Programme(external link) and some projects have identified a preferred option, and we’d like your feedback on these.  

Check out our ‘Have your say’ page for more information.
