The NZ Herald published my fourth opinion piece this week on how I will respond as Mayor to the recent “Consensus” Port Future Study report.
The report does provide a view on future options, but it’s really not a consensus view. The Port of Tauranga, New Zealand’s largest export port, wasn’t directly involved for example and they contest some of the information (as they would you might say).
This report is more a consensus view of some people’s thinking and research, but I agree with its most important recommendation. Meanwhile, we really have other more pressing issues to deal with in Auckland.
