A group of independent consultants has been chosen to identify and evaluate options for the long-term future of Auckland’s port.
The group’s members are experienced in environmental, marine, cultural, iwi relations, infrastructure, economics and strategic port planning sectors.
Work to begin immediately
Dr Rick Boven, Port Future Study Independent Chair, says a sub-group of the port study’s Consensus Working Group (CWG) evaluated and selected the consultants after a competitive procurement process.
The consultants will begin work immediately and report to the CWG by May 2016.
More about the Port Future Study
Mayor Len Brown initiated the independent Port Future Study in April 2015 to ensure Aucklanders understand the issues and have a real opportunity for input into future decision-making on Auckland’s port.
