The Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) provides the 10-year blueprint for transport in Auckland over the next decade. It includes a proposed 10-year investment programme and sets out our priorities for the city. The RLTP has been developed by the Regional Transport Committee, Auckland Transport, the New Zealand Transport Agency and KiwiRail. These groups have been working together to respond to Auckland’s growth and the city’s transport challenges. It aligns with the Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) and the central government’s recent Government Policy Statement on Land Transport.
Draft Proposal for a Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) overview and proposal
The Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) is being proposed by Auckland Council because current funding is not enough to deliver the level of investment in transport that Auckland needs. It is expected the RFT will raise revenue, along with other funding sources, so that we can invest an additional $4.3 billion in transport infrastructure over the next decade. The RFT revenue will be allocated across 14 specific projects, 10 of which include improvements in the Central Auckland area. These are in the RLTP along with many other projects.
Draft Development Contributions (DC) policy.
The Development Contributions Policy sets out the capital expenditure to be funded by development contributions (DCs) and how much developers will pay.
AT is undertaking the consultation on the RLTP concurrently with Auckland Council’s proposals for an Auckland RFT scheme, and development contributions. This consultation period is open until Monday 14 May 2018.
