RMLA Auckland : Infrastructure funding and financing and implications for planning
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
Auckland is anticipated to grow significantly over the next 30 years. Infrastructure is fundamental to this growth and has long-term consequences for Auckland’s future and how it functions for future generations and as a well-functioning urban environment. But the scale of the infrastructure investment that is required over the next 5, 10 and 30 years is significant. The challenge of aligning infrastructure to service infill growth, development areas and future urban areas across both brownfields and greenfields is a complex challenge that has far reaching implications.
The impacts of this investment challenge alongside the impacts of Covid-19, has led Auckland Council to focus on investment in specific areas within its LTP/RLTP (20201-2031). This has prioritized infrastructure investment for growth into ‘Investment Priority Areas’ (Auckland Housing Programme Large Scale Projects, the Inner North West, development of the CRL stations, Drury). However, identifying funding and financing sources for infrastructure investment poses a major challenge.
This discussion will outline the funding and financing challenges Auckland Council faces to accommodate growth across the Auckland Region and the complexity of aligning and integrating planning with infrastructure (and its funding and financing) alongside both the current RMA and as a part of the RMA reforms.
A light lunch will be served.
